We are excited to start a new research project and collaboration on our urban amphibian communities. Working with the Decatur Environmental Sustainability Board's Natural Systems subcommittee, we will be conducting regular surveys at Legacy Park to assess the health of the amphibian communities on the property. The knowledge gained by this study can help predict how restoration and development actions might impact amphibians and other wildlife occupying the park.
