Saint Louis FrogWatch 

Online Resources

Welcome to the Saint Louis 

FrogWatch Community

Thank you for your interest in the frog and toad populations of the Saint Louis Missouri region!  You do not have to be a frog or toad expert to help with frog conservation.   All you need is an interest in frogs and toads and a willingness to participate at the level of commitment you are able to.  

This website was created to be used as resource for both the frog enthusiast and for future/current FrogWatch Volunteers.  This site includes information on frog call identification, training opportunities, our iNaturalist project, and additional resources for FrogWatch volunteers. 

Our FrogWatch community offers several different ways you can participate with different level of training and time commitment. You have the option to help collect data about our frog and toad populations as a user of iNaturalist (FrogWatch-Lite) or as a FrogWatch Volunteer.

Check out the following project options below to find one that works for you and become a frog and toad conservationist.   

You can find more information about FrogWatch-Lite and FrogWatch Volunteers using the navigation bar at the top of the page or by clicking on the following shortcuts: FrogWatch-Lite and FrogWatch Volunteers
