NASHVILLE --- Lisa Powers, founding president of the Tennessee Herpetological Society and co-coordinator for the Nashville Zoo’s FrogWatch Program, will be the featured speaker for the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency’s April Nature @ Noontime.

The program will be held on Thursday, April 2 at the TWRA’s Region II Ray Bell Building located in the Ellington Agriculture Complex.

In addition, Lisa is also a herpetological consultant for Project Noah which explores and documents wildlife. She also works as the North American coordinator for iFrogs, the Indigenous Forest Research Organization for Global Sustainability.

FrogWatch is a citizen science program of the Associations of Zoos and Aquariums. It provides individuals, groups and families with an opportunity to learn about wetlands in their communities and report data on the calls of local frogs and toads. Volunteers collect data during their evenings from February through August and have been submitting data for more than 15 years.

Hosted by the Information and Education Division, Nature @ Noontime is held the first Thursday of each month. TWRA Nature @ Noontime presentations are about natural resources related topics and last about 30-45 minutes, allowing time for discussion during the allotted lunch hour. Contact Don King (615) 781-6502 or by e-mail: don.king@tn.gov for more information.
