SPYING ON SPRING PEEPERS. Saturday, April 12, 7 to 9 p.m., The Crane Estate, 290 Argilla Road, Ipswich. 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.
