FrogWatch USA was created in 1998 by the United States Geological Survey (USGS) as a contributory Public Participation in Scientific Research. In 2009, the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) assumed management of FrogWatch USA as part of its long-term commitment to amphibian conservation.

This form of "citizen science" enables everyday people to get involved in formal conservation efforts just by committing to listen and learn in their own backyards. 

BREC's Baton Rouge Zoo will be hosting a FrogWatch program in 2018 and welcome volunteers to get involved. Training sessions will be held as follows. Interested parties should complete the form below. Please send any questions to
