MELBOURNE, Ark. (AP) - Ozarka College is offering a series of workshops to help Arkansans become frog whisperers.

Ozarka is partnering with FrogWatch USA to offer free frog listening workshops in Mountain View, Ash Flat and Mammoth Spring, beginning in January. The seminars will be presented by Tom Krohn, Arkansas regional coordinator for FrogWatch USA.

The first session teaches participants how to identify frogs and toads in the area by their calls. Participants will learn to mimic frog calls, as well as receive handouts and visual memory aids. Participants will also learn why frogs are important, why they are in trouble and what can be done to help them.

The second session will introduce the wetlands and frog monitoring training for the FrogWatch USA national network, administered by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums.
