Nature Mapping

For the past several years, I have been working with the Wisconson Nature Mapping program .  The newsletter below gives the current information.  How can we do something like this in Kansas??

SPRING TIME!!  Tom turkeys gobble, sandhill cranes arrive, fox pups are
born, and soon you will hear wood frogs and spring peepers!!  Celebrate this
exciting time of year by getting outdoors!!!  Then, document your wildlife
observations online at!!

March 21, 2007 – Wisconsin NatureMapping Frog and Toad Training at Beaver
Creek Citizen Science Center from 6:00 – 8:00 pm.  Learn how to identify the
distinct calls of the 12 species of frogs and toads found in Wisconsin.
Participants listen for calls in the evening when weather conditions are
right three times between April and July.  Data is then entered on the
Wisconsin NatureMapping website.  To register call Beaver Creek Reserve at
715-877-2212 or email by Monday, March 19.

  1. Simplify and training. I used to do the amphibian monitoring for Joe Collins at The Center for North American Herpetology but the protocol requirements made it too difficult to get students involved. Setting aside a particular week like the winter bird feeder survey might make it more workable. We have field courses in the spring and fall that we could work with. It might be a good community service/service learning project.
