The Michigan Frog and Toad Survey - First Year

Lori G. Sargent

The Natural Heritage Program of the Michigan Department of Natural Resources, Wildlife Division initiated a statewide frog and toad survey in order to get baseline information on the populations of the state. The survey is intended to continue indefinitely. Twenty-six training workshops were conducted around the state to train volunteers how to do the surveys.

Approximately 1000 people attended these workshops resulting in 458 routes being established around the state. Some of these routes are the random routes developed by the National Biological Service, the rest were developed by the volunteers.
