Get Ready To "Spring Forward!"

Thanks to Michael Neu for sending these fantastic frog picture from his recent visit to the Tennessee Aquarium.
Get ready to “Spring Forward” with the Tennessee Aquarium Saturday, March 7th and celebrate fabulous frogs and amazing amphibians. While everyone is thinking about moving their clocks ahead one hour, the Aquarium is partnering with the Association of Zoos and Aquariums to host a day of frog focused fun.

Throughout the day Tennessee Aquarium visitors will be able to:

- Meet “Tad”, the Aquarium’s marvelous frog mascot, and have their picture taken with this “hoppy-go-lucky” character.
- Get closer to amphibians like frogs and salamanders during special, animal encounters presented by Aquarium educators.
- Create a frog paper puppet craft to take home and enjoy.
- Seek out the amazing and colorful frogs, toads, salamanders, newts and aquatic caecilians on display throughout the River Journey building.
- Discover what’s happening to the world’s amphibians during several short auditorium presentations about frog conservation.
All “Spring Forward” events at the Tennessee Aquarium are part of a continuing effort to call attention to the on-going amphibian crisis and educate the public about ways to help our froggy friends here in the Tennessee Valley.

So hop on down to the Aquarium for a great day of fun!

My friend heard on the news Friday that free trees will be given out on Saturday, including tulip populars. Was the news wrong? Did he mishear?
