This is one of three January trainings which will prepare volunteers to count frog and salamander egg masses in parks and natural areas. Monitoring native amphibian species helps measure overall wetland health and the extent to which regional enhancement efforts are helping wildlife thrive.
After completing one training, volunteers typically contribute a total 12-25 volunteer hours by completing four surveys over the course of three months (late January through March). Sponsored by Clean Water Services, Metro, Tualatin Hills Park & Recreation District, Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge and The Wetlands Conservancy.
