Description: Come spend a fun weekend in Southwest Alabama's longleaf with herpetologists, Jimmy and Sierra Stiles, learning all about frogs in "Alabama's frog hotspot". This region supports some of the highest diversity of frog species in the United States. Participants will learn how to recognize frogs by their call and by using field marks to identify frogs in hand. Nightly field trips will tour local frogging sites for hands-on practice. Learn how to choose the best sites for listening to frogs, no matter where you are. We will demonstrate how Google Earth and other map resources can be used to identify the best spots for exploring the sounds of the night. Local frogs will be used to illustrate techniques to target species by understanding their life history, habitat and survival needs. We will present some interesting new techniques used for long-term monitoring and research as well as discuss low-cost methods for managing your land for maximum frog diversity. Participants will have opportunities to photograph local frog species as well as some other interesting local reptiles and amphibians. The workshop will be based out of the Solon Dixon Forestry Education Center (http://sdfec.auburn.edu/) in southwest Alabama and we will have the opportunity explore over 90,000 acres of prime frog habitat!
