Save the Frogs!

18 of your favorite shops in downtown Three Rivers will be participating in the 6th Annual Save the Frogs celebration!

April 1-26: Stop by Centsible Treasures to “Find the Frog” and you’ll receive one entry into our drawing for a Centsible Treasures gift certificate! While you’re visiting Centsible Treasures, be sure to pick up a map of participating businesses to continue your frog search and enter to win more cool contests!

At Centsible Treasures and each participating store, you can also pick up a different frog coloring page for children! After taking the frog home to color, pictures can be turned in to Everything Educational at 1150 Millard St. so that everyone can enjoy these colorful works of art! (Pictures will be saved to be used again at future Save the Frog celebrations!)

Save the Frogs Day is celebrated on April 26th, 2014 all over the world, but Southwest Michigan is committed to saving our frogs all year long! For more Save the Frogs fun, be sure to mark your calendars:

SAVE THE FROGS! is the world’s leading amphibian conservation organization. Our mission is to protect amphibian populations and to promote a society that respects and appreciates nature and wildlife. We work in California, across the USA, and around the world to prevent the extinction of amphibians, and to create a better planet for humans and wildlife.

Amphibian populations have been rapidly disappearing worldwide and nearly one-third of the world’s amphibian species are on the verge of extinction. Up to 200 species have completely disappeared since 1979. Frogs and other amphibians face an array of threats from climate change to habitat destructionpesticide use; over-collection for frog legs and dissectionsinvasive species; and infectious diseases spread by human activity. Frogs eat mosquitoes; provide us with medical advances; serve as food for birds, fish and monkeys; and their tadpoles filter our drinking water. Plus frogs look and sound cool, and kids love them — so there are lots of reasons to save the frogs!

Founded by Dr. Kerry Kriger in 2008, SAVE THE FROGS! is an IRS-approved 501(c)(3) public charity and donations are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
