In 1995, the Nature Trust entered into a lease agreement with the City of Fredericton “for the purpose of protecting and preserving the gray tree frog (Hyla versicolor) and its habitat for future generations”.

Since 2012, we have been monitoring the gray tree frog through annual spring and summer surveys. These surveys aim to estimate the population size of the gray tree frog in Hyla Park as well as obtain data that will provide information on the ideal habitat for gray tree frog.

University of New Brunswick Masters student Shaylyn Wallace is in charge of leading the gray tree frogs surveys. Training is required for volunteers that wish to participate.
