Going Owl Prowling And Frog Walking
As you walk along a body of water during the evening, can you identify a frog by its ribbits and croaking? Can you tell if it’s the deep baritone call of the Bull Frog, or does the ribbit belong to the red eyed Tree Frog?
During a walk and presentation at the Reflection Riding Arboretum and Nature Center this Friday, starting at 7 p.m., you will learn how to tell the difference and more.
UTC’s Paul-Erik Bakland will teach you how to identify frogs by the calls they make. On top of that you will learn key information on how important frogs are to our ecosystems and you’ll be taught how to help frog populations grow and flourish.
That night you will be given the opportunity to learn and identify owl calls as well as UTC professor (and owl enthusiast) Dr. David Aborn takes you for a beautiful evening walk and helps you learn the different and special call of each species of owl.
Don’t let this unique learning opportunity pass you by. Next time you are with a group of friends you can impress them with your incredible frog and owl knowledge.
