One of the most common Florida sounds is the croaking of frogs and toads heralding the advent of rain, their search for mates or declaration of territory. These fascinating amphibians are the topic for the upcoming monthly Friday Night Naturalist program titled “Frogs and Toads of Florida” presented by Mike Cascioli on Friday, June 21 at 6 PM at Trout Lake Nature Center. This informative and entertaining program gives an overview of both native and invasive species of frogs and toads and their characteristics. You will learn about the impact of invasive species. A special interactive audio portion teaches their distinct sounds and calls which are often heard loud and clear on summer nights. This program is suitable for all ages and free to attend but a $5 donation is suggested.
