Park after Dark: Frog-spotting at Eagleby Wetlands

December 16 @ 6:15 pm - 8:15 pm

Join us for a night-time adventure to see which frog species are hiding in Logan’s parks and natural spaces!

Australia has over 240 species of native frogs. They are all around us and we want to teach you how to spot them and appreciate them safely.

These amphibians are amazing – they drink through their skin, use their eyes to swallow and inhabit every layer of the forest from the floor to the very tops of the trees! Frogs are one of the most threatened groups of animals on the planet, it’s super important to learn as much about them as possible so we can help to support wild populations.

Come along for this family fun walk and have the opportunity to accompany a frog expert of a real wildlife survey. You will receive a crash course in frogs before venturing out into the night to see what we can find and document!

During the walk you can help measure the health and distribution of frogs around the nation. From croaks and barks, to whistles and bleats, every frog species makes a unique sound. Using the free FrogID app, you can record the frogs calling around you and help us count Australia’s frogs.

Requirements:

  • Please wear fully long pants, long-sleeved shirt and enclosed shoes.
  • Please bring water bottle, a torch and a fully charged mobile device with FrogID app downloaded.
  • Suitable for ages 5 years and over, parent/guardian supervision required.
