In Search of Frogs program to be held at Chilo Lock 34 Park

Nature lovers will be able to share in the romance of spring by spying out some hopping froggy love on March 30.

The annual “In Search of Frogs” event at the Chilo Lock 34 Park will give people a chance to get up close and personal with some of Ohio’s most amorous little amphibians as the little four legged casanovas trill out their love in search of a mate.

“We’ll take a hike that evening,” said Clermont County Park District Naturalist Keith Robinson. “During the springtime at night is when they start their breeding season. We’ll walk through the wetlands at Chilo Lock 34 Park to look for the frogs who are out mating and making the mating calls. It’s mostly Chorus Frogs and Spring Peepers.”

The hike will focus on identifying the small amphibians and learning more about how they live. Adventurous hikers can try their hand at catching the miniscule operatic croakers, but may find it harder than it seems.
