Oct 15&16: WETLANDS CONSTRUCTION WORKSHOP in San Francisco Bay Area

For a great deal, register by October 1st!

What’s the most pro-active way to save the frogs? Build and restore their vanishing habitat!

This two-day workshop will be led by SAVE THE FROGS! Founder Dr. Kerry Kriger and wetland construction expert Tom Biebighauser. We will begin at the SAVE THE FROGS! Education Center in Berkeley, CA at 8:30am October 15th. Dr. Kriger will give a presentation on amphibian conservation. Tom Biebighauser will give presentations on wetlands construction and the ecological value and inhabitants of wetlands. After lunch we will visit wetlands in the San Francisco Bay Area to survey for native wildlife; to learn how to incorporate wetlands in to environmental education; and to design an actual wetland. We will adjourn at 5:15pm.


On October 16th we will meet at the Manor Elementary School in Fairfax, CA at 8am to build a 22’ x 36’ wetland. All participants will work together outdoors to construct an actual wetland at the school. This wetland will be self-sufficient and be designed to provide habitat for amphibians and other creatures — and environmental education opportunities for students — for years to come. You can learn about the wetland we will construct at the Manor School, download the site design report and the workshop agenda here. We will adjourn at 5pm
