Muskoka Conservancy is inviting you to join its ranks protecting the local environment.

On January 30th, the conservation agency will hold a training session of citizen scientists named ‘Project Protect’. You’ll be trained on how to identify frog calls and keep track of the current frog population in Muskoka. Experts say frogs play a crucial role in keeping Muskoka’s lakes, rivers and wetlands healthy, so this type of work is very important.

Conservancy officials say there’s no experience needed, all you do need is an interest in nature and a drive to help protect it. If you’re interested in joining this two-hour session you can contact Aaron at 705-645-7393 ext. 200 or e-mail
