Spend time outdoors and take meaningful action to protect a species of special concern by becoming a frog docent.
In the spring, Marin Water trains frog docents to monitor habitat conditions and to educate hikers at Little Carson Falls, a popular hiking destination located about five miles outside of Fairfax, and an important breeding habitat for the foothill yellow-legged frog, a federal and state species of special concern.
Docents provide education to visitors during the spring when the eggs and tadpoles are at their most vulnerable of being disturbed by visitors. The frog populations are threatened and are easily damaged if park visitors or their dogs go into the waters around the falls.
Docents should be 18 years of age or older. If you are younger, or have limited mobility, please reach out to us and we may be able to accommodate. We ask that all docents work at least three 3-hour shifts, between March and June.
Please contact us at email@example.com or 415.945.1128 to register for training.
