Frog Walks at Hyla Park
Thursday 01 August 2019 - 07:00pm - Thursday 01 August 2019 08:00pm
Join us as we learn about the several amphibian species that reside within the Fredericton city limits. Frog walks allow the respectful study of amphibians and their habitats, while also allowing for the exploration of the wetlands and all other biodiversity found there. Bring your rubber boots and a sense of wonder as we learn why seven different frog/toad species call the Hyla Park Nature Preserve home. The final public Frog Walk of the season will take place on August 29th. Be sure to attend a Frog Walk before the summer is over!

*Due to the sensitivity of the amphibian species, we ask that participants who wish to handle the amphibians avoid wearing sunscreen or insect repellant.
All are welcome and encouraged to attend! Space is limited, so please register in advance by contacting our Engagement Assistant at

What to Bring:
- Rubber Boots;
- Water;
- Bug net (optional)

Hyla Park lies within the boundaries of the City of Fredericton and is the north-eastern limit of distribution for the gray tree frog (Hyla versicolor), which is more than 80 km away from other tree frog sites. Hyla Park is leased to the Nature Trust through an agreement with the City of Fredericton. The preserve has a number of wetlands and ponds that vary in size with the seasons that are home to over nine different amphibian species.
