Our Save the Frogs day event today was a great success! We had 28 children and adults participate in the day. Everyone learnt something new about frogs, how fascinating and important they are to us, that unfortunately some of them are endangered... but there is always something we can all do to Save the Frogs! After a very animated presentation from me on all things froggy, we headed to Millers Pond at Currawong Bush Park to listen for frogs, have a look and learn about how people can take part in the Melbourne Water Frog Census and spent some lovely time outdoors in the bush. No little froggies to find today.... but the kids still had fun exploring the 'quicksand' mud around the pond and running around in the bush!
Then it was an art and craft frog frenzy... we had Save the Frogs badges to make, mosaic frogs, origami jumping frogs, frog on a peg, colouring in and lots of lovely books and other resources to look at.
We also raised some money to go towards frog conservation projects run by Zoo's Victoria - a huge thank you to all the parents who donated and for coming today to make our Save the Frogs Day so special.
Another BIG thank you to Manningham City Council for hosting today!
