In December 2021, Dan Teeter, a biologist with the U.S. Forest Service, shows Chole Hansum, a biologist with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the new ponds built on Tahoe National Forest for California red-legged frogs. In 2021 and 2022, the Tahoe National Forest built approximately 19 ponds within a mile of the Big Gun Conservation Bank, home to the largest population of California red-legged frogs in the Sierra Nevada, to give the frogs new habitat to discover and populate.
