Any number of unusual websites pop up on the "chicago" tag on, but among the more unusual of late is the Calling Frog Survey sponsored by the Chicago Wilderness Habitat Project. Unusual, yes, but interesting and important, as well. While most of the winter workshops have already taken place, volunteers are still needed to help organize this annual effort to preserve the local amphibian population. Check the site for more details.
