Hop to It! – Pollywogs, Frogs and Vernal Pools
NOTE: This program is not currently being offered.
Pollywogs and frogs fascinate children and adults alike. Join us for this fun, interactive program to make or renew a friendship with these amiable amphibians.
The first half of the program will be held indoors at the Splash Education Center. Guests will have the opportunity to:
- Get “up close and personal” with live frogs and toads of four different species!
- Play “Name that Frog!” and learn to recognize our local croakers by their calls.
- Meet what they eat by peering through microscopes at the tiny creatures that live in the vernal pools.
- Meet other live animals that love to munch on frogs and toads. Discover the surprising ways that frogs and toads avoid becoming lunch!
Afterwards, we’ll walk to the vernal pools to search for wild frogs and pollywogs. Come prepared with boots or sturdy shoes, long pants, and outerwear to stay warm and dry.
The program will be held rain or shine. You won’t want to, but you may leave at any time.
Make your reservation today! We have a maximum capacity of 80 people and these programs are very popular.
