Powell Butte Amphibian Egg Mass Survey with Portland Parks & Recreation

Feb 25, 2023 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

We just can’t stop counting amphibian egg masses! Join JCWC, Portland Parks & Recreation, and PP&R Ecologist, Laura Guderyahn and learn about our native pond-breeding amphibians. At this event you will learn about different species of amphibians and their life cycles, survey methods, and egg mass identification. Then you’ll slip into some waders and conduct a survey to count egg masses of frogs and salamanders.
