Hum (or croak) with a courting bullfrog

Melanie StatenAnderson, Fun Outdoors

Spring is here and the Tennessee Valley’s 15 different species of frogs and toads are active. Love is in the air as the males croon to attract the attention of the females, but each species croaks at a different time and different location. You don’t see them because they are camouflaged to blend into their watery places but you can certainly hear them.

Join local naturalist Stephen Lyn Bales via Zoom for this virtual presentation hosted by the UT Arboretum Society at 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 23.
