Amphibian Surveying in Fernbank Forest

May 30, 2017 at 2:52 pm Leave a comment

Fernbank Museum scientists have been participating in the Metro Atlanta Amphibian Monitoring Program, hosted by the Atlanta Botanical Garden. This program is meant to gather a baseline and monitor amphibian populations throughout the Metro Atlanta area as a long term study of wetland health and to identify areas in need of restoration. Each month, scientists spend several hours in Fernbank Forest looking for and counting salamanders and frogs as well as listening for frog calls after sunset.
