Spring is the season for the tree frogs of North Carolina to come out and start singing their songs. What better way to celebrate the warmer and sunnier days than to provide a safe place for our amphibian friends to hide while they make their calls. Access your artistic side by decorating your own frog tube that you can either bring home to accent your own backyard, or leave here in the park to provide shelter in one of our many swampy/wooded areas. Each frog tube is about 4ft long and needs a creative person like you to decorate it and make it a welcoming place for a tree frog to hide from birds and rodent preditors. Please call the visitor center to sign up for the program at 919-571-4170.
This program is geared towards younger participants but older participants can be counted as well. There are only 9 PVC frog tubes so there can not be any more than 9 participants unless 2 siblings or friends want to decorate one tube. Adults shouldn't be counted into the participant total. If you want to take your frog tube home, you may have to come the next day so your paint can dry.
