End-of-field Season Thank You Event

Utah’s Hogle Zoo will be hosting an appreciation event for community scientists!

When: August 22nd from 6 to 8 PM

Where: RendeZoo Room, 2600 Sunnyside Avenue Salt Lake City, UT 84108

A short presentation on the 2019 field season’s findings will be given and snacks and refreshments will be provided.


Mid-Season Updates: Whether you've joined us at the training event, on a survey trip, or you're still planning to join us, we wanted to share some updates from the field season thus far!

  • Utah’s snow pack was approximately 200% above average this year, which meant some of our survey locations were not accessible until later in the season and toad breeding activity was likely delayed.

  • Over 50 toads of multiple age classes were located on Thousand Lake Mountain.

  • Four toadlets were located at Silver Lake in Big Cottonwood Canyon (a site without confirmed boreal toad presence in years).

  • To date, over 20 community scientists have joined us on field surveys and over 60 field surveys have been completed.


Reminder: You can still sign up to join us on field trips through the Boreal Toad Habitat Assessments: Community Scientist Resources page.
