Doylestown to leap into educational event

April 23, 2017 by  

Spring has arrived in Doylestown, and that means the local frogs and toads will be out in full force, filling the evenings will their singing. The public is invited to an area event that will give them an opportunity to learn more about these amphibians.

The Peace Valley Nature Center will be hosting a family friendly activity that will see participants head for the watery areas around it to search for toads and frogs. A guide will be on hand to provide more information about these creatures, their life cycles, and the role they play in the local ecosystem. Since the numbers of many species have been declining, tips about what people can do to protect them for the future will also be discussed. Booklet printing can be utilized to create field guides for those who come to an event like this to help them identify the animals they encounter.

Families and individuals that plan on attending are asked to arrive dressed appropriately, as there is a high chance they will get themselves wet and muddy. They are reminded that they will need to register ahead of the date if they wish to participate.

This evening of learning and fun will take place at the Peace Valley Nature Center on May 17. The Visit Bucks County website has additional details for anyone who requires them.
