In the early evening darkness, attendees will quietly make their way through the dunes to the bogs and puddles that serve as breeding pools for tiny frogs, and hope to catch a glimpse of them as they call to find a mate. The chorus of the spring peepers means winter is finally coming to an end; these creatures are among the very first to call and breed in the spring.
