CHANGE OF DATE: The 11 Jan 2017 Frog Watch has been moved to 18 Jan, so as not to clash with the Summer By The Sea Rakali event. Unfortunately we are unable to edit the date on this listing.
Learn how to identify local frog calls, and some of the places you may find them in Bayside.
Our regular Frog Watch is part of a survey of the health of the local frogs for Melbourne Water. Every month we go to a handful of local places to listen for frogs. Listening to frog calls is the best way to identify them.
We also carry our bat detectors when the weather is suitable, and take a short walk along part of a golf course looking for tiny microbats.
You are welcome to come along and learn about our local frogs and microbats from the surveyors.
We start at Sandringham Golf Course, then move to a couple of nearby locations.
