Chorus Frog

The chorus frog is an at-risk species about the size of a large grape. It has a unique call that sounds like fingernails dragging down the teeth of a comb and can be heard from up to 1 kilometre away!

Come meet the biologists who work to protect the chorus frog in the wetlands of Leamy Lake Park. At this meet and greet, you’ll learn about the species, its habitat, and what you can do to protect it.

With any luck, you’ll hear this little frog’s big song!
