Create a backyard environment the amphibians won't be able to resist: #savethefrogs

It may take a year or two before frogs or toads move in, so be patient. Your plants need some time to mature, and the frogs need to find you. Be aware, too, that your pond will attract only those frogs native to the area, and those that can thrive in the setting you’ve provided. It would be hard to get wood frogs, gray tree frogs or spring peepers to take up residence in your pond if you don’t live in a wooded area, for example, says biologist Randy Korb, author of a soon-to-be-released guidebook on Wisconsin frogs. And bullfrogs need more water than a backyard pond can provide, he says, so unless there’s a larger water source nearby, you can forget about seeing them.
