Now that Maine frogs are starting to emerge and sing their spring songs, it is a good time of year to find and observe them. From 5 to 6 p.m. on Friday, April 9, Coastal Rivers Education Director Sarah Gladu will host an online program about Maine frogs.

Gladu will talk about the variety of different frogs found in the Damariscotta-Pemaquid region, how to identify them by their song, and how to locate them. Participants will learn about interesting behaviors and characteristics, and why frogs are important in our local habitats. Gladu will also discuss some threats to frog populations and share ideas for helping to protect frogs and other amphibians locally.

Thanks to member support, this program is free of charge. To join using Zoom, participants must register online at

The program will be recorded and shared with all those who register, regardless of whether they are able to attend.

With a 28-year career in environmental education, Gladu is director of Education and Environmental Monitoring for Coastal Rivers Conservation Trust. She has a master’s degree in environmental learning and leadership from the University of Minnesota.

Coastal Rivers is a non-profit, member-supported, nationally accredited land trust with active programs in land conservation, water quality, trails and public access, and nature education in the Damariscotta-Pemaquid region.
