Eavesdropping on frogs at night is heaps of fun and you can do it throughout the year – best on calm, mild nights after rain. No previous knowledge required- come and join us!! The 2020 Training seminar dates are now available- you can choose one of three
Tue 29.09., Wed 30.09. and Thu 01.10., 18:00 to 20:30 each night.
A theoretical part will be followed by a hot soup diner and finished off with a practical frog ID session while walking through the wetlands.
You can book your spot on the Jerrabomberra Events page by following this link.
Looking forward to talking frog with you!!
Here an awesome find – Neobatrachus sudellae– the spotted burrowing frog, along with Crinia signnifera, C. parinsignifera and Limnodynastes tasmaniensis, was “caught” after >30mm of rain frolicking in the ponds of the Arboretum!!- Have a listen to the beautiful calls

Frogwatch Census Kit
The National Water Week Community Frogwatch Kit contains all the information you need to participate in the annual Census. Hard copies of the Frogwatch Census Kit will be available at our training events, or on request to the Frogwatch Coordinator. Please note that the links below take you to an older version of the Census Kit. Most information is still valid but we do use a different method for the online data entry now, have extended the survey period to all of October, and utilise a different field data sheet (see above)!! Find updated contact details here
