The Gerald E. Eddy Discovery Center will host “Night of the Amphibians” from 8-9 p.m. on Saturday, April 6.

Of course, this program depends on the frogs emerging from their winter hibernation by Saturday evening.

If the amphibians begin calling at the Discovery Center by then, we hope you will join us for a lively presentation featuring frogs, salamanders and quivering masses of eggs from local ponds.

You’ll learn how you can recognize frogs by their calls, and the program will conclude with a walk to a nearby pond to see and hear them singing in the night.  Bring a flashlight and dress for the weather.

The cost is $2 per person or $5 for a family.

The Discovery Center is located at 17030 Bush Road in Sylvan Township.

Advance registration requested at 734-475-3170, and staff will call you back, if the program is cancelled due to silent frogs.
