The Eastern Spadefoot Toad is the rarest frog species in Massachusetts. Through unique and seldom seen photographic documentation, we will explore the secret life history and active restoration efforts being undertaken on behalf of this elusive and little-known species. This online presentation will describe ongoing efforts aimed at restoring a viable Eastern Spadefoot Toad population at Ashumet Holly, and Mass Audubon's role in supporting anuran conservation statewide. We'll also introduce FrogWatch USA, a national citizen science program teaching volunteers to identify local frog and toad species by their calls, and how you can get involved.

Presenter: Ian Ives, Long Pasture Sanctuary Director, has been leading the pioneering Spadefoot Toad and Wetland Restoration Project at Ashumet Holly Wildlife Sanctuary in Falmouth for the past 10 years.
