      Hello Friends and Happy New Year!

      Please join us for the first talk of 2007. Remember when we heard a while back that frogs were in trouble? Steve will bring us up to date and tell us what the East Bay Regional Park District is doing to preserve our local amphibians.

      Cindy Spring

      Close to Home presents a talk and slide show.


      What's Happening to the Frogs?

      Learn More about Amphibians in the East Bay


      With Steve Bobzien, naturalist with the East Bay Regional Park District


      Monday, Jan 8, 2007 7:30pm

      Montclair Presbyterian Church in Oakland



      An amphibian is an animal that spends time on land but must breed and develop into an adult in water, such as frogs. Amphibians appeared approximately 350 million years ago. Although the larger amphibians died out at the Triassic-Jurassic extinction, many of the smaller familiar amphibians continued to flourish for millions of years. However, very recently many species of amphibians including salamanders, newts, frogs, and toads throughout the world have noticeably declined even in apparently pristine habitats. Along with discussing evolution and natural history, Steve will explain the global, regional, and local factors affecting various amphibian populations. His slide show will highlight local populations.



      Steve Bobzien is the Ecological Services Coordinator for the East Bay Regional Park District where he focuses on endangered species. He coordinates the district's amphibian research project.
