Did you know that only male frogs call? Do you know why? Can you tell the difference between a waterboatman and a backswimmer?

To find out more about the fascinating frogs and wonderful waterbugs that live in your local waterway, join Waterwatch at our information evening and wetland visit.

The evening will start with a presentation on frogs and waterbugs, with a chance to look at a live sample of waterbugs. This will be followed by a visit to the Jacana Wetlands to find out what frogs are calling across Hume. Hopefully we will be able to record information for the Melbourne Water Frog Census and hear the call of the threatened Growling Grass Frog!

Registrations essential via email to or call Melbourne Water on 131 722.
