We met with the Amphibian Conservation Coordinator at Atlanta Botanical Gardens and talked frogs- read the interview here! We promise it is super cool!

We couldn’t celebrate Save the Frogs Day without some tips on how you can help:

  • Create a frog friendly backyard. Let your grass grow and reduce trash and chemicals in your yard. Also provide a water feature.
  • Learn about the frogs in your area.
  • Conserve water.
  • Recycle! Recycle! Recycle!
  • Check out organizations like SAVE THE FROGS!

Save the Frogs Day wouldn’t be complete without a little music from our favorite frog- Kermit!

It’s Not Easy Being Green and Frogs in the Glen!
