Amphibian Watch at White Rock Lake
Jun 29 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Amphibian Watch at White Rock Lake with Barbara Turner
The last Friday of the month from March – October     At dusk/sundown

Location: Sunset Bay, on the east side of White Rock Lake, Dallas 75218. From Buckner Blvd., take Poppy Dr. (just north of Garland Rd.) toward the lake, then left onto E. Lawther Dr. to Sunset Bay. 830 E. Lawther Dr.

Come on out to White Rock Lake and help Barbara Turner with her Amphibian Watch. It’s an amphibian “listen,” since we ID the frogs by their croaks. Barbara sends the data to TPWD for their statewide amphibian monitoring efforts. We will begin at dusk (check your paper for sunset time) and will watch for about an hour and a half.

Barbara will be “watching” frogs each last Friday from March through October. Come out and join the fun! (And come early if you’d like to bird watch for a few minutes.) For information, contact Barbara Turner, 972-222-7321.
