The Iowa Department of Natural Resources is training volunteers around Iowa to help monitor the state’s wildlife.

The volunteers will get trained in February, March and April to monitor either raptors and colonial waterbirds or frogs and toads.

Monitoring these populations can indicate issues with different wildlife habitats. For instance, the frogs and toads depend on clean water, so a decline in their population may indicate a lack of clean water sources.
