Frog talk at UW-Fond du Lac

How do frogs communicate? What are they saying to each other? What can we learn about the natural world by studying frog communication?

Get answers to these interesting questions and experience the sights and sounds of frogs from Wisconsin and across the globe.

Gerlinde Hoebel will the presenter for a free public program at 7 p.m. April 17 in Room UC114 University Center at UW Fond du Lac, 400 University Dr., Fond du Lac. Signs will be posted at the main entrance of the campus.

Hoebel has been a professor at UW-Milwaukee’s Department of Biological Sciences since 2007. She was born in Ulm, Germany, where she earned her undergraduate degree. She studied Gladiator frogs in Costa Rica for her master’s degree and North American tree frogs at the University of Missouri for her doctorate degree.

Hoebel will show a power point presentation and play the sounds of the frogs she is featuring. She suggested having this program in April since the first of our frogs, the spring peepers and chorus frogs, start to call just after the ice melts and the water begins to warm.

This program is part of a series of presentations hosted by the Gottfried Arboretum and Prairie, focusing on topics in nature. These programs are made possible due to the generous donations of Consultant’s Laboratory, Fond du Lac Area Foundation, Master Gardeners Association of Fond du Lac County, Grande Cheese and Wisconsin Energy Foundation.

Those interested in the Gottfried Prairie and Arboretum are invited to join the newly-founded Friends Group to support the Arboretum and its activities. Members receive an informative newsletter, discounts on admission to special events, advance email notices of our monthly programs, and numerous volunteer opportunities.

For more information on joining the Friends or questions concerning the upcoming program, call Connie Ramthun, education coordinator at 920- 533-8939. Please visit our updated website: gottfriedprairiearboretum.org.
