Special Features: Northern Leopard Frog Expert
Nimble and quick, Northern Leopard Frogs are an iconic species of Alberta’s grassland, marshland and forest ecosystems. Once a common sight in Alberta, this species is now disappearing from the landscape and has been listed as threatened in the province. This summer, we need your keen eye to help us search for these elusive frogs on one of our properties. The expedition will be lead by Kris Kendall, a biologist with the Alberta Conservation Association (ACA), who has dedicated his life to the study of amphibians in Alberta. Join us this August in the search for Alberta’s Leopards and learn more about the special role amphibians play in their watery ecosystems.
