Maine’s Native Toads and Frogs are seldom thought of but provide a vital role in the stability of our natural resources as an indicator species. Through this presentation, Maine Master Naturalist Paul Powers explores the life cycles of frogs, fun facts about frogs, their seasonal activities, their State Status in Maine and what we can do to live in balance with our native frogs.
Paul grew up in Pennsylvania and has always been captivated by nature and wildlife. He has been a wildlife photographer for the past 20 years which has taken him to many places and allowed him to become involved in many environmental projects. Paul uses his photography as an educational tool and donates many of his works to centers and institutions to promote preservation of our wildlife and raise funds for rehabilitation. He has also furthered his education by becoming certified as an Environmental Educator and a Maine Master Naturalist. Paul now resides in Maine with his wife and three dogs and travels the state working with organizations to promote living in harmony with our wildlife.
