Green Valleys

Can you hear it in the air? The frogs are awakening from their winter slumber. Join staff and naturalists at Green Valleys Watershed Association at Welkinweir to learn the basics of identifying frogs and toads by sight and their calls. Then practice your identification skills on a walk around Welkinweir’s ponds. We will also create a Toad Abode for each participant to take home and place in their yards! This event will be held on Saturday, Feb. 16, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at Green Valleys Watershed Association. Severe weather date Feb. 23. 

No experience necessary. Please dress for the season and wear sturdy shoes. Bring a flashlight. The program will begin at Welkinweir’s Education Barn. Parking is available in the visitor parking lot off of 1368 Prizer Road, approximately 1 mile west of Route 100, just south of Pughtown.

This program is for ages 6 to adult. Program fees per person are: $7 for Green Valleys Watershed Association members / $9 for nonmembers. Payment is due by the start of the program. In the event of inclement weather, those registered will be notified of the reschedule date of Feb. 23rd.

Please sign up in advance by contacting Rebecca Blacketter at or at 610-469-4900. Welkinweir is located at 1368 Prizer Road, Pottstown, PA 19465, in East Nantmeal Township.
