Topic: Frogs, Community Science & Conservation

During this virtual presentation, Naturalist and Greenbelt Environmental Educator Christopher Ricker will share his knowledge and historical records related to Staten Island’s frog and toad populations, and how the establishment of the public lands on Staten Island has assisted in providing one of the last stronghold’s for our local amphibian populations in New York City.
