Radnor Lake Visitor's Center 1160 Otter Creek Road, Nashville, TN You must enter from Granny White Pike. Middle Tennessee's Frogs and Toads throughout the Year Frogs of Tennessee - Our great gift to enjoy We are fortunate to have as guest speakers Bob and Andrea English, Environmental Consultants with Leaps, as we observe Middle Tennessee's frogs and toads through all four seasons. Using their own images & recordings, they'll discuss when and where to listen for various species. They will also show you some of the habitats used by each species and a few of the wildflowers associated with the peak calling time of each. We'll also look at how the distributions of some species have changed dramatically in recent years. It's an exciting time to be observing frogs and toads in Tennessee! Andrea English has a bachelor's degree in wildlife and fisheries science and a master's degree in biology. She has been an interpretive naturalist for 28 years at such places as the Woodlands Nature Center at Land between the Lakes, Dunbar Cave State Natural Area and the Warner Parks Nature Center. She is now the Instream Flow Coordinator at TWRA. Robert English has a degree in mechanical engineering and has interests in amateur astronomy and birding. His passion for night birds has yielded sightings of all nineteen species of North American owls and nineteen species from other countries. His owl photography can be seen in Audubon Society books, and his astrophotography and amphibian work has also been published. Kids will enjoy this program, and we encourage you to invite your friends. Free and open to the public. Information about Leaps can be found at LEAPS.ms. The public is invited to this free presentation. We hope to see you there!
