Bits n Pieces Count em all at yearly critter day


first_imgAs a Clark County tree frog, or at least taking on the personality of one, Cory Samia has some important information to share with her human neighbors.Samia, the water and wetlands educator at the Water Resources Education Center, says her fellow tree frogs are sensitive about pollutants in the environment.“As a tree frog, I want to say — don’t use poisons on your lawn or garden, because I breathe in those poisons through my skin, and it can kill my eggs,” Samia said.And if you want to participate in the center’s 14th annual Critter Count this year, she also hopes if you pick up any of her frog, snake, salamander or lizard friends, that you say hello and then put them back where you found them.“As a tree frog, I really like the fact that I can swim around and can also climb trees and camouflage myself,” Samia said. “That way I can see you and you can’t always see me.”last_img
