The UC Davis Tahoe Environmental Research Center presents:

Recovering the Endangered Mountain Yellow-legged Frog in the Sierra Nevada

Thursday April 6, 2017 from 5:30 PM to 7:00 PM PDT
UC Davis Tahoe Science Center
291 Country Club Drive
Incline Village, NV 89451
Imagine a world with no frogs. No longer would you hear frog melodies in the evening, algae would flourish, and entire ecosystems could change dramatically. This is a possibility in the Sierra Nevada because 90 percent of the Mountain yellow-legged frogs have been disappearing due to an amphibian pathogen and loss of habitat from fish introductions in our lakes. An ambitious and promising effort is underway to recover these frogs, and this approach may be applied to conserving other threatened amphibians globally. Join Dr. Roland Knapp from the Sierra Nevada Aquatic Research Laboratory to learn more about the recovery effort.

Registration for this event is required. The program will begin at 6 p.m. with refreshments and no-host bar from 5:30 - 6 p.m. at 291 Country Club Drive in Incline Village (between Tahoe Boulevard/SR 28 and Lakeshore Blvd.) on the campus of Sierra Nevada College.
Seating is open at 5:30 p.m. to guests who have pre-registered, open seating starts at 5:50 p.m., and the program begins at 6:00 p.m. A $5 suggested donation will be collected at the door.
