Spring Peepers

A CBF Education Student Investigation

On spring nights in the Chesapeake Bay watershed, a chorus of high-pitched peeps rings out from marshy woodlands and swamps.

Follow along with CBF Educator Liz Glaston as she tracks down the source—a tiny tree frog called the northern spring peeper. After watching the video, explore the importance of the small, rain-fed wetlands they call home and try your hand at composing some "Peeper Poetry" with our Spring Peepers Investigation.
