If you’ve ever been curious about the nightly nature noises in your backyard, join frog expert Bob Brodman as he unveils the secret life of frogs during the Saturday, April 7 Open House at the Douglas Center for Environmental Education.
Mr. Brodman has been studying the diversity of frog species in Miller Woods and other locations in the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore’s wet environments for years and will be on hand to show pictures of these elusive animals at 1:30 p.m. Weather permitting, he will also lead a hike to the interdunal ponds outside to access the numbers and species of the amphibians visiting today. Families can enjoy frog crafts and games as well throughout the day.
This program is part of the year round free Saturday open house programs at the Douglas Center. Bring the whole family and learn more about this declining animal species worldwide and ways you might help. Free refreshments and a frog craft will be on hand afterwards.
The Douglas Center is located at 100 N. Lake Street in Gary, Indiana. For more information on this or other programs at Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore, visit the park website at www.nps.gov/indu/planyourvisit or contact our information desk at 219- 395-1821.
