This in-person presentation will focus on the natural history, ecology and conservation biology of North Carolina frogs and toads, and unique amphibian residents in our area.

Dr. Shem Unger will join the MARSH chapter of NCWF to discuss the biology of frogs and toads, why they are important to the environment, how they communicate, factors impacting their populations and how we, the local residents, can help sustain their populations. The presentation will be offered in person only at Banks Presbyterian Church in Waxhaw.
