[mood |excitedexcited]

 Hi, I am new. I just learned about frogwatch. So cool!
I was wondering how big of a committment it is,... i.e. do I have to go every night, every week, etc..... I would love to do this, however I am already volunteering in 2 other organizations.... hence the question.
Is there anybody from Buffalo, ny?

In as little as 20 minutes a week you can make a huge difference. Ideally FrogWatch wants you to monitor your site twice a week, 3 minutes each time. Then you also have the short time it takes to enter the data into the database on the Homepage www.frogwatch.org
I am from Indiana and am really looking forward to things warming up and frogs to start calling!

20 minutes once a week is all it takes. Have fun!

Welcome to Frogwatch

Like mentioned before, 3 minutes at each site about twice a week. I moved to Auburn NY from the Buffalo area. There are many really cool places out there to listen for frogs, let me know where you are and maybe I can point you towards a good location. If you are ever up for a great frog happening, visit Beaver Meadow in North Java during the 3rd or 4th week in April. I used to work there and could give you better directions if interested.

It's not a big commitment. Just go out as much often as possible near dusk. 3 minutes is all the research that is needed. The best time is between 8:00 and 10:30 PM. I am also fairly new to this program also. I only have time to do it once a week but try as much as you can to get at least twice a week. Sorry but I'm from Kentucky.
