The annual evening Frog Walk in Jean Lafitte National Park's Barataria Unit is free and open to Environment Majors and Minors and International Students, but please reserve your spot ahead of time (email cmurphey@loyno.edu). We will learn to identify frogs by their vocalizations and see alligators’ glowing red eyes. We are also guaranteed to see other nocturnal critters along the way.

We will meet at the vans behind Buddig Hall (tallest dormitory) at 6:45 pm. We leave promptly at 7 pm and should return around 11 pm. If you wish to drive and/or carpool separately, you will be given a map to the site we are visiting –Coquille Trail. If you want to meet us there, email rathomas@loyno.edu for a map.

Dress for the weather and wear comfortable shoes. We will be on a rocky trail most of the evening. Be sure to bring a flashlight and insect repellent if you use it.

Please notify Christine Murphey (cmurphey@loynoedu) to reserve a place.
