Frog Monitoring at Blackwell Forest Preserve

The Forest Preserve District's amphibian monitors help ecologists assess frog and toad populations and update species lists for our DuPage forest preserves. Not only do monitors identify species by call but they also search for larvae in preserve wetlands to record data. This data is then used by our Natural Resources department for site management plans.

Volunteers Mark Donnelly and Veta Bonnewell have monitored frogs and toads for 10 years. Their route is located at Blackwell Forest Preserve.  

 

Blackwell Forest Preserve contains more than 1,300 acres and offers a variety of habitats including prairies, woodlands, lakes and wetlands.
