Indiana Dunes State Park will offer a program on the life and times of Indiana’s amphibians, Saturday, April 27, at the park’s Nature Center at 2 p.m. CDT.
The program will feature the various frogs, toads and salamanders that inhabit the marshes, swamps and bogs in the state, and present information about the unique life changes they undergo each year. The program will be presented by Spencer Cortwright, an Indiana University Northwest professor.
“Our frogs and other amphibians are popular indicators of our own conservation efforts,” said Brad Bumgardner, park interpreter. “Knowing and understanding their life stages and population helps us gauge our own environmental successes.”
The program is free after paying the standard state park entrance fees. For more information call the nature center at (219) 926-1390.
Indiana Dunes State Park is at 1600 North 25 E. Chesterton, 46304.
