Texas Amphibian Watch at Austin Pond Society

Monday Evening July 18th 2016 at 6:30pm Mark Klym of the Texas Amphibian Watch will be the guest speaker at the monthly Austin TX Pond Society meeting held just off MoPac at 2220 Barton Springs Road in the Zilker Botanical Garden’s Austin Area Garden Center meeting room. This is a good match of two great organizations because many Texas ponds become hosts of many Texas Amphibians. The meeting is free and open to the public if you’d like to join us!

Did you know that amphibians are bioindicators that can tell us when our environment is becoming uber toxic? Kind of like the canary in the coal mine, amphibians have permeable skin and malformed limbs in local amphibians can be a barometer of the true condition of our environment. If you can’t make it to the meeting don’t worry, you can get information about the Texas Amphibian Watch by calling 800-792-1112 x 8062 or at the Texas Amphibian Watch web site
