Don’t miss naturalist and humorist- David Stokes from 3:00pm-4:00pm as he uses live creatures and animal artifacts, songs and short stories, in discovering Pond Life- from frogs, to turtles, and even arthropods! Bring the whole family for all or part of the day; you won’t want to miss this special celebration of spring!  Dress for the weather and don’t forget your boots.

Online registration will be open until 10 AM on Saturday-  pre-registration helps you get to the frogs faster, but otherwise please feel free to walk-in and register day of! This event is designed to be festival style, so please feel free to join us whenever best works with your schedule. Be sure to save plenty of time for all the fun, though! See you Saturday!


Tips for first timers

  • Please park and check in at the Main Building of the Nature Center.
  • Pre-register online and get to the frogs faster!
  • A Riveredge Naturalist will guide you through the watery frog world.
  • Although you may come any time between 1:00 – 4:00 pm, we recommend arriving by 1:30 pm if possible. This will allow you plenty of time to explore all the stations and be assigned to a Naturalist who will make sure you see and do all there is at Frog Fest!
  • If you’re particularly enthusiastic in your frog-hunting, you just might get wet. Bring a change of clothes.
  • Yes, you’ll get to touch a frog! They begin to hide after the first hour, but don’t worry, we corral a handful so everyone has fun.
  • Two different designs of our Frog Fest t-shirts will be for sale in the gift shop! (limited supply!)

Please note: Riveredge has recently upgraded our registration system. The good news? Registering for programs should now be much quicker and much easier! You will easily be able to register multiple family members at once, save your contact info for easy reuse, and quickly browse available programs. The bad news? Because this is a new system, we can not transfer over your old account. Unfortunately, that means you will need to create a new account on the new system and re-enter your information. We’re very sorry for the inconvenience, but please know that once you have your new account created and your info saved, you’ll have to do very little work to register for future programs. 

Please don’t hesitate to call us at 262-375-2715 if you have any questions or run into any problems. We’re here to help! Thank you so much for your patience as we work to continue to improve our services for you!
