Susan Browne

Abstract


Frogwatch '94 was an environmental education project involving schools, youth groups and the general public in monitoring the calls of the Northern Spring Peeper.  The pilot project ran in Halifax County in the spring of 1994. Frogwatch '94 was a joint effort between the Nova Scotia Museum of Natural History, The Clean Nova Scotia Foundation and Envirosphere Consultants Ltd. Core funding was provided by the Environmental Partners Fund. This report outlines the structure and delivery of the project and analyzes the results. It concludes with an evaluation of the program from educational, environmental and scientific perspectives and suggestions for a province-wide project in the spring of 1995.
