Boreal Toad

The Colorado Division of Wildlife is looking for volunteers to help search for the elusive boreal toad in the high country.  Volunteers will be trained over two sessions – Thursday at 5:30 p.m. at the DOW office in Salida, and May 22 on a field trip to a location known as toad habitat.

Boreal toads are small amphibians that were once common throughout the southern Rockies, but their population has steadily declined over the past two decades. They are now listed as an endangered species in Colorado and New Mexico, and a protected species in Wyoming.  They live between 7,000 and 12,000 feet. 

Go here for more information on the boreal toad including a sound bite.

For more information about becoming a volunteer, contact: Raquel Stotler, DOW Area Wildlife Conservation Biologist, at 1-719-530-5526, (raquel.stotler@state.co.us); or Jena Sanchez, DOW Volunteer Coordinator, at 1-719-227-5204, (jena.sanchez@state.co.us).
