The Atlanta Botanical Garden's Metro Atlanta Amphibian Monitoring Program (MAAMP) is looking for frog lovers along the South Fork! MAAMP is a collaboration of Garden staff, volunteers, interns and citizen-scientists to collect data on amphibian abundance 'inside the perimeter'.
The goal is to continue these surveys each year to better understand the population trends of the 17 species of frog and 14 species of salamander native to Metro Atlanta, as well as identify candidate sites for conservation and habitat restoration.
Citizen-scientists are needed to conduct at least one survey per calendar month (a half hour or more after dusk) and must first pass a Frog Call Quiz (click here).
Interested in participating? Join us for an informational meeting with Mark Mandica, the Garden's Amphibian Conservation Coordinator, at Zonolite Park (address here)
