The Science Museum of Virginia is currently closed to the public so we're taking our popular Lunch Break Science series, sponsored by Bon Secours, online!
Amphibians are predominantly associated with fresh water bodies; however, more species are being found to have a higher tolerance for saline environments than originally thought. Not only is it exciting to learn of new adaptations in the animal world, but it is also an important survival consideration as we live in a time of increased storm surges and sea level rise. This lecture will discuss how frogs and toads have adapted to brackish water conditions and how citizen science is crucial to monitoring frog and toad populations.
What: “The Salty Frog: Exploring Salt Tolerance, Sea Level Rise, and Citizen Science,” presented by April N. Harper, Environmental Educator, Maymont
When: Wednesday, June 3, 12 - 12:45 pm
Where: Zoom meeting in the comfort of your home
This digital Lunch Break Science is free to attend, but registration is required. Registration will be open until 10:30 am on the day of the event.
