Calling all frog and toad enthusiasts!

We need your ears to help us survey and listen for frogs and toads in Kalkaska County.

Our goal is to complete one route, three times during emergent windows of amphibians throughout the spring and early summer. Due to the nocturnal nature of our subjects we will complete these survey’s after sunset. Participants can ride together in a bus provided by Au Sable Institute of Environmental Studies to the 10 wetland sites in Kalkaska County.

The survey’s will be completed on:

  • May 16th at 8:30pm
  • June 20th at 8:45pm

Please meet at the Northland Plaza near the gas station to carpool with Au Sable Institute in their passenger vans. All surveys will be completed regardless of rain. A little rain is actually good for frog calling. If there is severe inclement weather, the survey will be postponed until the following evening.

More information about frogs and toads can be found here.

Please contact Renee Penny if you are interested in participating in this Citizen Science project. Or let us know if you are interested in completing your own route. You can reach Renee at (231)258-3307 or
