Chicago Office Gives Presentation on Frog Friendly Yards

Region 3, March 27, 2014

Mike Redmer of the Chicago Office recently gave a presentation to more than 40 members of Citizens for Conservation (CFC - a Barrington, Illinois group) on making frog friendly yards. After covering basic aspects of amphibian biology, Mike tied this back to the simple needs of amphibians and showed those in attendance some things they could do to attract amphibians to their yards. The presentation was part of CFC's 2014 theme of "Habitat Corridors," and was part of ongoing Chicago Office efforts to engage urban/suburban residents in actions they can take at home to conserve wildlife.
