For much of the year, frogs and toads fill the night air in Florida with a cacophony of sounds — songs, chirps, and trills that are as varied as the species that make them. Whether they are looking for mates, staking out their turf, or heralding a change in weather, the sounds absolutely draw our attention.

Florida has perhaps the most diverse assemblages of frogs and toads in the entire United States, with a total of 30 species, 27 of which are native.

Join us for an audio-visual tour of this fascinating group of animals and learn about their behavior and ecology. After becoming more familiar with them, we will take a stroll, weather allowing,  to find and join an anuran nocturne. The evening will wrap-up with a question and answer session. All attendees will receive one of Paul’s recordings of the “Frog Calls of Florida”.
Participants please wear comfortable walking shoes that you don’t mind getting a bit dirty.
