  2. Thank you all for sharing your common goal to preserve the state as well as sharing much of your awesome knowledge. I am not from the state and was very curious what happened to the states tree frogs during winter. I do my best to save as many as possible in the summer months by removing them from where there mistakenly placed themselves, ie. (a garage). They are tiny, fascinating creatures and I thank you all for teaching me more about them!
