Island residents are asked to stop and think about the plight of the frogs for a moment this Friday, during the third annual Save the Frogs Day Saturday (April 30).

Celebrations will be hosted by the Wilderness Committee with a public tour through Nanoose Bay’s DL33, containing rare Coastal Douglas fir forest, thriving wetlands and diverse plant communities, a place ideal for many frog populations.

The tour will be lead by biologist Ron Buechert after a short talk and photo displays.

Meet for the tour at 1 p.m. at the Nanoose Bay Petrocan station on the corner of the Island Highway and Northwest Bay Road.  For more information, please call 250-752-6585.
