The Belle Isle Nature Center invites visitors to spring forward into Daylight Saving Time while learning about amphibians and amphibian conservation at its Spring Forward celebration. The free event takes place on Sunday, March 11, 2018, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Spring Forward offers the opportunity to hear from zookeepers who care for the amphibians at the Belle Isle Nature Center and learn about amphibian conservation.  The event also includes activities such as frog mask making, leapfrog games and storytelling.

“Our goal is to increase knowledge about amphibians in ways that are engaging and fun,” said Amy Greene, curator of education for the Detroit Zoological Society (DZS).  “We want to help people connect with what’s happening to amphibians in nature, including in their own backyards, and understand how we can all make daily choices that will help amphibians and the environment we share.”
