- About Us
Spring peepers belong to a group called the tree frogs and are well suited for arboreal life with adhesive disks at the end of their toes, long limbs and digits to cling to twigs and bark. Spring peepers are small, about 2-3.5 cm long, and light brown in color, which can be easily identified by the dark cross, or “X” marking on its back. Usually found in thick brush, swampland vegetation and moist woodlands, very rarely high in trees. In spring, during mating, they can be found in temporary sloughs, preferring abundant emergent or shrubby vegetation.
The Confederation Forests will provide habitat for all species, making a place to live, learn, and enjoy for the islanders who are here now, and those still yet to come.
