Join the Maritime Aquarium, Woodcock Nature Center, and Norwalk River Watershed Association as we virtually Leap into Conservation. Our exciting online workshop will introduce your family to the amphibians of the Long Island Sound watershed, their ecological importance, and how you can participate in the Frogwatch USA citizen science project. We will end our program discussing how you can create a healthy backyard habitat for amphibians by making a frog or toad abode (home). Workshop participants can pick-up a free frog or toad abode making kit from the Aquarium that will engage young conservationists in positive environmental behaviors and be a fun family project. This workshop is free to attend and pre-registration is required.
