Conservation Training

Save The Frogs Day Wetland Workshop

April 27, 2023 – April 28, 2023

Location: Meredosia, IL

SAVE THE FROGS! is recruiting volunteers to help build a wetland for Illinois Chorus Frogs (Pseudacris illinoensis) in the Meredosia National Wildlife Refuge in Illinois. The event will take place April 27th and 28th, 2023 in celebration of the the 15th Annual Save The Frogs Day! What better way to celebrate the world’s largest day of amphibian education and conservation than in a beautiful wildlife refuge with fellow amphibian enthusiasts?

Volunteers will get hands-on ecological experience and learn a tremendous amount about wetland construction and restoration, as well as amphibian ecology and conservation. Attendees will have the opportunity to help build a wetland, learn about the rare Illinois Chorus Frog and its unique sand prairie habitat, and explore life in a wetland.

The project takes place from 9am to 4pm, rain or shine, on Thursday, April 27th and Friday April 28th, 2023. Volunteers can help on either or both days.
