Children learn about and hunt for frogs at Mystic nature center
Mystic — It was a natural leap for children participating in the Nature Adventure Afternoons program on frogs Wednesday at the Denison Pequotsepos Nature Center.
With nets in hand, the kids waded around in the water on the center's grounds and looked for the slippery amphibians. They even caught a few.
Additionally, the children watched while educator Tessa Stuart released two young peeper frogs, which were part of about a hundred different tadpoles and salamander larva that a local resident found in their pool recently and which center has been taking of and releasing as the creatures have matured.
Wednesday's session was the last the Nature Adventure Afternoons programs. On Monday, the center begins its Summer Nature Camp of half- and full-day programs for ages 3 to 15.
