Fantastic Freezers: Wood Frogs & Spring Peepers

When: March 5, 2022, 10:00 am – 11:30 am
Where: Shaver\'s Creek Environmental Center, Petersburg, PA
Add to Calendar: iCal | Google

Did you know that Wood Frogs and Spring Peepers are able to freeze in the winter and then thaw once it gets warmer in the spring? Their bodies produce an anti-freeze substance that prevents their cells from being damaged during their frozen state! Learn more about these amphibians and how frogs can help us understand the health of their environment.  

This Science Saturday program will consist of an informational presentation with an indoor activity, followed by a nature walk to visit nearby frog breeding ponds.  

We will meet in the Weidemann Bookstore and Gift Shop in our visitor center at the start of the program. All ages, families, and individuals are welcome. Youth participants must be accompanied by an adult participant. Please dress appropriately for the weather. Please be aware that masking is required during the indoor portion of this event.


Registration is limited to 20 participants.

This event is free and open to the public thanks to the generous support of Shaver’s Creek members.
