Conservation Speaker Series – Saving the Mountain Yellow Legged Frog

This event has passed.

Please join Oakland Zoo and Vance T. Vredenburg, Ph.D. The Mountain Yellow-Legged Frog, a local species found in the high elevations of the Sierra Nevada, is not excluded from the global amphibian crisis; only several thousand are thought to remain in the wild. Due to Dr. Vredenburg’s research and conservation work into the nature of the chytrid fungus, which is decimating amphibian populations worldwide, there is now hope for the Mountain Yellow-Legged Frog. Join us.

Zimmer Auditorium Please park in the lower parking lot and proceed to the Maddie’s Center for Science and Environmental Education. Enter the glass doors on the ground level.

Pre-registration not required, tickets purchased at door.
