Take a Frog Watcher’s Hike at Mountsberg on April 25 and 26

Posted by on

It may not feel like it yet but the animals know spring is in the air! At Mountsberg Conservation Area, male frogs will soon be getting ready to sing in full chorus to attract mates. This natural phenomenon can be witnessed when you join in the fun at one of Mountsberg’s annual Frog Watcher’s Hikes on Friday, April 25 and Saturday, April 26 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Join us for a puppet show, visit to the pond and even a ‘Swamp Tromp’ where we will search for reptiles and amphibians emerging from their winter dormancy. Frog songs or mating calls are so distinctive that various species can be identified without actually seeing them.

Our experienced Outdoor Educators will show you how to distinguish between some of the most common species found in our region. Round out the evening with an up close and personal encounter with one of the park’s resident native Ontario snakes.
