FrogWatch and Turtle Tally Appreciation Day

Every November we invite the participants of our citizen naturalist programs, Ontario Turtle Tally and FrogWatch Ontario, to join us for a day at the Zoo. But this is not just any day; we provide our participants with an overview of accomplishments from the past year and highlights of how their participation has contributed to amphibian and reptile conservation projects in Ontario. Of course everyone that attends is a frog or turtle lover so we organize a selection of researchers and conservation experts to give informative presentations on new and exciting turtle and frog research in Ontario. We also encourage participants with unique and interesting stories to get up and share their experiences with the crowd. Adopt-A-Pond staff answer questions and share stories of sightings gathered throughout the year before inviting everyone to join in a tour of the Zoo. This is an invitation only event, if you report to Ontario Turtle Tally or FrogWatch Ontario, watch your email inbox for an invite in the fall!
