Cool Things-Record the Ribbet

Record the Ribbet is another one of the citizen science project we are so fond of here at The School down the Lane. This one is pretty simple:

Prepare by listening to calls and viewing photos of local species in your area, head outside on a nature walk, and then come back to share your findings online. Make sure to take a notepad with you to jot down your observations.

Record the Ribbit is a special event of Nature QuestSM FrogWatch USA™, National Wildlife Federation’s popular citizen-science amphibian monitoring program.

You can print out Data Sheets specific for your area to record your findings and then enter them on-line. They also have links to recording of frogs so you can recognize what you hear.

I plan on taking the kids down to the lake at dusk (the only time we’ll be home tomorrow, unfortunately) to listen. I know we’ll hear spring peepers if nothing else! I would love it if we could see one!
