Participants will be assigned to pre-selected routes and asked to conduct nighttime "listening surveys" on 3 evenings per year between April and July. Available route locations and other information can be found on the MFTCS website. Training materials including a CD of frog calls, maps, and data forms are provided. Volunteers need a vehicle, good hearing, interest in frog conservation, commitment to completing assigned route, and desire to participate for multiple years.
