Mt. Tam Frog Docent Training - Hosted by MMWD

Docents monitor habitat conditions for and educate hikers about native foothill yellow-legged frogs. The required training begins at the Sky Oaks Headquarters in Fairfax with a discussion of frog biology and population threats, radio training and methods for engaging the public. At noon we take a 3 mile round-trip hike to Little Carson Falls. The minimum commitment is three 5-hour shifts between March and June, when the frog eggs and tadpoles are at their most vulnerable. Rain will not cancel. Docents must be at least 18 years old or participate with a partner who is at least 18. Please RSVP.

Maximum number of volunteers is 25. Ages 18 and up. Register via email at
