Location
Tirhatuan Park


Join Melbourne Water Frog Census and the Greater Dandenong Environment Group (GDEG) for a frogging night discovering and monitoring local frog species along Dandenong Creek. After a barbeque, we will search for and monitor local frog species, discuss their habitat requirements and learn what the Frog Census data are telling us about populations in the area. This will be a practical, hands-on monitoring session which will also cover some conservation actions members can take in their local communities and homes.

Please book for catering purposes: call 03 9795 1330 or email julie.sims@optusnet.com.au

Please dress appropriately for the weather, wear sturdy shoes and bring a torch. It is recommended you download the Melbourne Water Frog Census app prior to this
session (access here: https://www.melbournewater.com.au/community-andeducation/help-protect-environment/frog-census)

Time permitting, we will visit the following sites previously monitored by the Greater Dandenong Environment Group:

  • the park opposite 35 Blanton Drive, Mulgrave;
  • Tirhatuan Park, Dandenong North off Kriegal Way;
  • Tirhatuan Wetlands opposite 24 Illawarra Ave, Rowville;
  • Dandenong Wetlands, near the basketball stadium in Stud Rd

This event is supported by Living Links with funding from the Victorian Government’s ‘Our Catchments, Our Communities’ Initiative.¬†
