The St. Louis Personal Injury Lawyers with Cofman Townsley Injury Lawyers are aware of how important it is to give back to the community and an opportunity to jump into action has arisen. The St. Louis Zoo is in need of volunteers to help monitor the local population of frogs and toads this coming spring and summer.

Participants will go through training courses that will turn them into “citizen scientists”. Then, as part of the campaign known as FrogWatch, those individuals will gather data including types and numbers of amphibians in a certain area, as well as information regarding breeding cycles.

Those who are looking to get involved with the program must attend at least one of the five upcoming training sessions. The schedule of dates and locations for the trainings can be seen here.

During those sessions participants will learn how to identify several local species of amphibians by sight and call, as well as how to properly record the data they collect.

This isn’t the only event going on at the St. Louis Zoo in the near future though. In fact, several other upcoming activities that are taking place at the facility were highlighted on Cofman Townsley Injury Lawyers’ Facebook page. The firm encourages citizens to get involved by checking out when these events are taking place and attending!
