Dipnetting Days RSVP
Fill out this form to participate in our Adopt an Ephemeral Wetland program and/or RSVP for a Dipnetting Day (dates and time below). Here is more info about our program:

COVID Note: RSVP is required so we can limit our numbers. Masks will be required. We will be meeting at larger wetlands so to make sure there is plenty of space to spread out.

The Munson Sandhills region of the Apalachicola National Forest, just south of Florida’s capital city Tallahassee, is rich with small, isolated wetlands that hold water only during certain times of the year. Why are these wetlands important? The list is long but one significant reason is that they provide breeding habitat for a suite of amphibians that only breed in these fishless wetlands.

Over the past 50 years, some of these species have declined and one, the striped newt, has all but gone extinct within the Apalachicola National Forest. We are engaging the community to help us keep an eye on these amphibians and the unique wetlands on which they depend. These data contribute important information about species diversity, wetland water levels, and help us detect any declines in amphibian populations early before costly and less effective measures are needed.

We host monthly training events (wetland conditions dependent) at which you learn sampling methodology, amphibian larvae ID, and data entry. We also provide you access to project-specific field guides and surveying equipment and supplies so you can then go dipnet your wetland while the info is still fresh in your mind. In return, you agree to survey the amphibians in your adopted wetland at least twice a year. The public is invited to all these training events - its a great opportunity to check the program out to see if you are interested or just to have a great time!
