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.
