Frogs of Fawkner Moomba Park, Fawkner

Thursday 6th
6:30pm - 7:30pm

Did you know a rare frog, the Growling Grass Frog, has been re-discovered in Fawkner? Join MCMC’s Waterwatch Coordinator for a walk and talk, froggy activities, learn to recognise different frog calls and help collect important data for the frog census.  Families are most welcome.

The event involves walking, at times in the rain, so please bring weather appropriate clothing for the event. (Frogs love rain so don’t be put off by a rainy evening, this event will still go ahead.) Bookings essential here
