Save the Frogs Day is coming

 Yosemite National Park will be hosting the “Save the Frogs Day” on Saturday, April 28, beginning at 10 a.m., and lasting throughout the day.

 The public is invited to participate in a day filled with interpretive nature walks, educational booths, films, and special guests, which are all centered on amphibian awareness.  All of the events are free and originate in Yosemite Village in front of the Visitor Center.  The event is sponsored by the National Park Service, the National Wildlife Federation, Save The Frogs, and DNC Parks and Resorts at Yosemite, Inc. 

Activities begin at 10 a.m. with the Frog Fair, which includes tables with fun activities, educational displays, research, interpretation, and sustainability.  The Frog Fair will last until 4 p.m.  Additionally, there will be an amphibian Junior Ranger program at the Yosemite Valley Visitor Center, two interpretive frog walks, indoor talks regarding the status of the amphibian population, and a special showing of the PBS Nature film, “Frogs: The Thin Green Line.” 

There will be a host of educational materials and free, frog-themed bracelets, pins, postcards, etcetera, available throughout the day.  In addition, Ranger Rick and a frog friend will be making special appearances during the fair.
