Toad Trek at Crane Wildlife Refuge

Come tot he Crane Wildlife Refuge in search of toads and other peepers!

Ever wonder what that screeching sound is on damp spring evenings? The cacophonous chorus of toads and Spring Peepers means winter is finally coming to an end. In the early evening darkness we'll quietly make our way through the dunes to the bogs and puddles that serve as breeding pools for the American Toad, and hope to catch a glimpse of them (and other species too!) as they call to find a mate. These are the toads you most often see around your yard – but there's a lot to learn about them! Come with us as we get up close and personal with these bumpy jumpers!  *Children must be accompanied by an adult.
