Feel a Frog for Free

Ever see a desert frog? You can do that and touch one too in an evening of family fun and education at the next Nature Center Wildlife Wednesday program.

On August 16 at 7 p.m., wildlife researcher Janice Engle will give a talk on the Columbia spotted frog at the MK Nature Center located at 600 S. Walnut in Boise.

Columbia spotted frogs live in an area most people do not associate with frogs, the Owyhee desert. Engle will explain how these frogs have adapted to living in a desert and the unique strategies they have developed to stay alive. Engle will also discuss the decline in amphibian populations around the world, and what that may tell us about the environment.
