About Our Work

Honoring Life, One Frog at a Time

A Frog House, our magical little house on the Erie Canal in Pittsford, educates visitors about amphibian survival through recreational events and workshops for children and adults.

We work with local governments to protect wetlands and establish parks with ponds, and educate visitors about the impact of lawn and garden poisons on life itself.

We teach compassion and compassionate communication skills for the sake of all life, from frogs at the bottom of the food chain through homo sapiens at the top, by modeling responsible land and water use and maintenance.

When most people hear of frogs, they respond with amusement or curiosity.

They’re whimsical creatures, right?

It’s less commonly known that they have an essential role in maintaining ecological balance, and their diminishing numbers are a huge piece of the looming Sixth Extinction.

Frogs are at the bottom of the food chain….

…so their poisoning by pollution and chemicals, climate change, and the devastation of wetlands and habitat by mindless development mean that all the creatures that prey on them are disappearing as well—and up the food chain!

Let’s work together to honor life, one frog at a time.
