The Friends of Greenview & Pioneer Nature Areas is working in conjunction with local herpetologist David Mifsud and Natural Area Preservation (NAP) to restore habitat located in the Frog Meadow with hopes of translocating egg masses of the Northern Leopard Frog to the meadow. The Frog Meadow refers to the area which borders the wetlands to the west, canal to the east, trail on the south and treeline to the north.
What are the characteristics of the Northern Leopard Frog?
Green or brown in color with 2-4 rows of dark round spots of irregular sizes on back and sides with white belly and chin. Breeding starts when temperatures reach above 65 degrees. At that time, males give a snore call followed by a series of clucks.
