Frogs: A Chorus of Colors
January 21st – May 13th, 2012
The Springfield Museums will be hosting the exhibit, “Frogs: A Chorus of Colors,” January 21st through May 13th, 2012. This is a new exhibit of live frogs that teaches visitors about the many different types of frogs found around the world and the habitats in which they can be found. The exhibit holds fifteen different habitats filled with plants, waterfalls, rocks, ledges, etc., each of which is filled with frogs and toads. Museum visitors can learn to identify frogs by reading about specimens, watching videos of frogs, and listening to recordings of frog calls. Kids can even learn why each frog looks the way that it does by comparing the frog’s size and coloring to the habitat in which it can be found.
Opening Day: Saturday, January 21st from 10am-5pm. The exhibit’s opening day features exciting events including live animal demonstrations from 11am-12:45pm and a puppet performance of “The Frog Prince” at 1pm.
A visit to the new exhibit is a great opportunity to learn about amphibians that live outside of your backyard! To learn more, call the Springfield Museums at 800-625-7738 or visit www.springfieldmuseums.org.
