This workshop is designed to provide practical knowledge to professional biologists, resource managers, and students on the life history, ecology and conservation of the Foothill Yellow-legged Frog. This frog is a candidate for listing under the California Endangered Species Act and has been petitioned for listing under the federal Endangered Species Act.

The Friday morning lecture will review identification features at frog life stages and similar species, range and distribution, habitat requirements, behavior, survey techniques, conservation needs, and regulations. An accompanying field trip will be held at a nearby creek and known site of FYLF. Aquatic habitat types will be discussed and a demonstration of survey techniques provided. Attendees may choose from a Friday afternoon or Saturday field trip session. Personal transportation is required for the field trip. Carpooling is encouraged.

Instructors Dave Cook and Jeff Alvarez are experts on amphibian ecology and conservation, and conduct herpetological research throughout California.
