Frog Day 2005 at the Atlanta Botanical Garden

In October 2005 I took a road trip to Atlanta, Georgia with a few friends for the tenth annual American Frog Day. It included a show and sale offering live frogs and supplies, a behind the scenes tour of the gardens, and many exceptional lectures about amphibians. Highlights included the behind the scenes tour, Joe Mendelson’s talk about amphibian declines and extinctions, as well as Dr. Klaus Busse’s presentation of Darwin’s frog. Below are photographs of the event and botanical gardens. Contact me at devin@amphibiancare.com before using any of these photographs.
