How do I know? The sound of frogs!
For several years I have worked with the Skagit Land Trust in Skagit County Washington, doing surveys for frog eggs in the early spring. We monitor the same wetlands every year to see the changes in the native and invasive species, both plant and animal. This has greatly increased my awareness of our Northwest environment, and has helped me in my work and passion of helping to create the places where we ALL love to live!

Frog eggs and how to ID them ~ quick overview
These tadpoles were rescued from a swampy area on my property. The weather was warming and they would have been stranded as their pond dried up. I put them in a metal tub with some plant debris and a couple of big rocks. I shielded them from the sun, screened the tub and fed them garden greens as they grew. It took about 2 months for them to grow legs & hop up on the rocks. They eventually hopped out of the tub and into the surrounding environment - their home!!
