It's amphibian migration season; listen for the peepers

Spring is officially here and that means, the peepers have arrived.

Today, we learn about Connecticut’s amphibians, many are waking up now and migrating to wetlands.

Coming up, we also talk about the ways volunteers can help collect data on amphibians around our state with FrogWatch, a national citizen science project.

And we talk to a field scientist about the climate and biodiversity crises impacting many species including amphibians.

Have you heard spring peepers in your backyard?
