The Illinois Chorus Frog is seldom seen because it spends most of its life underground in sandy soils surrounding vernal ponds, which are also called ephemeral wetlands. This rare species is found only in Illinois, Arkansas, and Missouri along the sandy banks of the Mississippi and Illinois Rivers. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is working with agencies, nonprofits, and landowners to design and build wetlands that will provide breeding habitat for the rare Illinois Chorus Frog on the Illinois National Wildlife Refuge. Wetland Restoration and Training LLC and the Sheltowee Environmental Education Coalition designed 31-wetlands at 6-locations that would provide important breeding habitat for the Illinois Chorus Frog. We would greatly appreciate your help funding one or more these wetland projects. Workshops are planned where participants can learn how to build wetlands to provide breeding habitat for the species.
