Greetings Frog Watchers:

We have our season kick off meeting scheduled for Saturday, June 1, 9:00 AM at the Calusa Nature Center and Planetarium. The Center is located at 3450 Ortiz Avenue at the intersection of Colonial Blvd. and Six Mile Cypress in Fort Myers, one minute from I-75 at Exit 136.

We would like to discuss data management and reporting issues. We also have copies of the latest Frog Watch publication in Florida Scientist from the 10 year summary. I am also happy to announce that we received a grant from Steve Brookman derived from revenue generated by the River Roots and Ruts Trail Run for $1000.

I have purchased 5 Kestrel portable weather stations ($200 each) for those of you who don't already have one. These devices measure wind speed, RH, temperature, dew point etc. etc.

If you can't make it please let me know so we can discuss any issue you may have.
