Gray Tree Frogs Spotted at Restoration Site

Thursday, June 22, 2017


Three gray tree frogs (Hyla versicolor) were recently spotted camouflaged on a log and in the rocks at a USDA-NRCS wetlands reserve program restoration site. The animals were utilizing the newly installed shallow water habitat pools. Shallow water habitat pools are intended to be seasonally wet after rain and snow melt, but then will dry up for a portion of the year. During the spring, these pools provide important reproductive habitat for native amphibians.
