Description

The Calling Frog Survey is a citizen science program based at Chicago Academy of Sciences/Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum. This program trains volunteer monitors to identify the 13 species of northern Illinois frogs by call and by sight. Monitors work with program coordinators to establish call survey routes on publicly-managed land and conduct evening surveys to record observations of calling intensity during three rounds of frog breeding activity between Feb. 28 and July 10. These frog call observations serve as a metric of breeding activity for local populations, and help us track changes in distribution of populations, and frog response to changes in habitat. No prior experience is necessary. You may attend any of our workshops and you may opt to monitor with a partner. Monitors conduct a minimum of three evening surveys per season.
