The northern red-legged frog is listed as a sensitive and vulnerable species by the Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife. This training is for volunteers interested in performing amphibian egg mass surveys for THPRD, Clean Water Services, The Wetlands Conservancy or Metro.
Participants are trained and assigned to survey ponds within the district where they search for, identify and count egg masses of this and other native amphibian species. Surveys take approximately 2 hours and are performed every two weeks from February 1 - March 15. Dates may vary year-to-year with variations in weather.
Meeting Place: This training will be held at the Tualatin Hills Nature Center, in the Beaver Den. The Tualatin Hills Nature Center is located at 15655 SW Millikan Way, in Beaverton. 97003
