Conceived and coordinated by SAVE THE FROGS!, the goal of the International Take A Hike Day is to get people outside! When people love nature they are much more willing to protect nature. But as habitats get destroyed and technology consumes more of our time, the disconnect between people and nature grows. In the 21st century, making sure we spend time outdoors is more important than ever...plus hiking is enjoyable and healthy! So please mark your calendar for the 2nd Annual International Take A Hike Day! All you have to do to take part is go for a hike or spend some time in the great outdoors. You'll reconnect with your roots and remember what is at stake if we don't act quickly to protect nature and wildlife. We encourage all hiking and wildlife groups to arrange hikes on August 16th and spread the word about the International Take A Hike Day. Don't worry if you don't have a local group, just go for a hike by yourself or with some friends and family.
SAVE THE FROGS! Founder Dr. Kerry Kriger will give a presentation on amphibian conservation to the UC Berkeley HerpGroup, 7pm. More details coming soon!

SAVE THE FROGS! invites you to attend our three-day Wetlands Construction Workshop where we will teach you how to build wetlands. We will build an actual wetland we have designed for the Manor School in Fairfax, CA (Marin County). Join us at this workshop and we will train you in the art of wetlands creation so that you can incorporate this valuable habitat creation and education mechanism into your ecological toolbox. The knowledge you gain at this workshop will set you on the path to constructing wetlands for wildlife in your part of the world.
Giving Tuesday is a national day of giving that happens annually on the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving. We hope you can donate to SAVE THE FROGS! and show your support for the fabulous work done by your favorite charity!
