Long-toed salamander

Red-legged frog

Pacific treefrog

Where are these amphibians found?

Our teams find frogs and salamanders in ponds and wetlands all over King and Snohomish counties, even in Seattle city limits! Amphibians can be found in ponds and wetlands in local parks, on WDFW lands, in natural areas on college campuses, and in wetland mitigation sites.
