Learn how to monitor frogs and birds – Monday night


monitor-wildlife-Every year, the Bay of Quinte Remedial Action Plan (BQRAP) needs citizen scientists to monitor frogs and birds in local wetlands. On Monday, March 7, 2016 at 7pm at Quinte Conservation, naturalist and columnist, Terry Sprague will explain: FrogWatch Ontario, which is a great program for kids due to its simplicity and the more extensive Marsh Monitoring Program that includes both frogs and birds.

Over the course of this evening, you will learn how to monitor a local wetland for frogs and/or birds whether it’s in your backyard, at the cottage, or a selected monitoring site. The Marsh Monitoring Program records wetland birds and frogs twice during the year for 15 minutes each between May and July, and FrogWatch volunteers record the amphibians present once a week from April through June.

“The information you collect tells us about the presence and abundance of both species in coastal and inland marshes, and contributes to our understanding of these species and their habitat needs,” said Sprague.

Terry is available to help guide each individual through the monitoring.

“Monitoring for frogs and birds in our marshes is a way for outdoor enthusiasts to enjoy their pastime. While at the same time, contributing to our knowledge of the Bay of Quinte wetlands and their quality,” he said.
There is no cost to attend the presentation. Those interested should contact Terry Sprague at 613-848-4549 or email
