Rouge Frog & Toad Survey

The Rouge River Watershed Frog & Toad Survey is a volunteer listening survey. Volunteers are trained to distinguish the breeding calls of the seven frogs and one toad found in the watershed.  Surveyors choose a quarter square mile area within the watershed that they survey independently on warm spring nights.

In 2015, after collecting 17 years of data, FOTR is taking a year to analyze the data and therefore WE WILL NOT BE OFFERING TRAINING for new surveyors in 2015.  Past surveyors are welcome to continue to survey their block.  Check back with us in 2016 for training.
