  • Building a Water Garden for Frogs

    Saturday, July 11, 2015 - Greenville (Augusta County)

    Installing a home water feature is a great way to provide much needed habitat for frogs, salamanders and other aquatic wildlife, if you provide all the "right" ingredients these creatures need. Carol Heiser, Habitat Education Coordinator and Education Section Manager of the VA Department of Game and Inland Fisheries, will give a short presentation at Springdale about frogs and aquatic habitats, as part of the DGIF "Virginia is For Frogs" campaign. Then Carol and Master Naturalist volunteers will take you on a walk around the grounds to point out habitat features and look for evidence of frogs and other aquatic species. The field experience will be followed by a demo of a new frog pond installation, with practical tips and other information about effective water features for wildlife habitat. Event is FREE and open to the public. PROGRAM LOCATION: Springdale Water Gardens, 340 Old Quarry Lane, Greenville, VA 24440. For more information, contact Springdale at 540-337-0738.
