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

NTC Amphibian Watch at White Rock Lake

When: Friday, March 29, 2019     Approx. 7:00 PM (dusk) – 8:30 PM
Location: Sunset Bay on White Rock Lake, 830 Lawther Dr. 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.

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 Texas Parks and Wildlife Department 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.
