We had a great trip to Red Top Mountain State Park in spite of the air being thick with spring pollen. We kept our walk short and focused on the upper end of a small creek that popped up out of a spring. We were in for treat as there were a lot of small frogs to be seen.

Frogs are a very important member of the ecosystem in that they are a bellwhether species. A lack of frogs is a sign of a suffering ecosystem. In Cobb County were I live, there is a volunteer program where people can help assess the prevalence of frogs in the area. Another Atlanta resource is the Amphibian Foundation.
