Saving Pittsford’s Amphibians
Save The Frogs Day focuses on raising awareness about the critical role of frogs in our ecosystem and the threats they face. Hosted by A Frog House, this event in celebration of the 15th Annual Save The Frogs Day will bring together local residents, environmental enthusiasts, and conservationists of all ages to celebrate the beauty and importance of these amphibians. This is an excellent opportunity to learn about the importance of frog conservation and how we can all play a role in protecting these amazing creatures. This event has been partially funded through a $370 Save The Frogs Day Grant from SAVE THE FROGS!.
