Galena Frog Walk

Do you know the difference between frogs and toads? Hop on over to the Galena area this April to find out during the annual Fantastic Frogs and Friends moonlight frog walk.

Jo Daviess Conservation Foundation hosts the educational event in northwestern Illinois. It begins with a toast to the spring season and an informational session where you’ll learn how to identify frogs and toads by their sounds. Attendees meet under the Meeker Street footbridge and stroll along the Galena River Trail while listening to the hearty croaks of a number of frog species. Afterward, guests will hike toward the Buehler Preserve, looking and listening for the species of amphibians mentioned in the session.

The free event, perfect for kids and adults alike, takes place at 6 p.m. April 25. Be sure to dress appropriately and bring your own flashlight and minnow nets. For more information, visit
