Does your class want a free presentation about frogs?

NOTE: The program described below was completed in 2017.
You can find current info on booking presentations on our Online Presentations page and our In-Person Presentations page.

Thanks to a grant from the Helen and Allan Ridley Charitable Trust, SAVE THE FROGS! is educating thousands of San Francisco students about the importance of amphibians! Through the highly popular San Francisco Tadpole Headstart Program, which is led by SAVE THE FROGS! and our partner Tree Frog Treks, we have already given dozens of free presentations on amphibian conservation to thousands of San Francisco students. Tree Frog Treks compliments the presentations by bringing live native San Francisco tadpoles into classrooms to teach students about metamorphosis and threats to local frogs. Our goal is to get San Francisco kids excited about frogs and interested in protecting them.
