Thousands Of Singing Western Chorus Frogs Are A Welcome Sound Of Normalcy Here In Utah
Every spring, thousands of tiny Western chorus frogs emerge from their hibernation spots at the bottom of ponds and lakes to herald in the season with thousands of tiny songs. In a time when the world seems completely different than anything we’ve ever experienced, the return of the frogs’ choruses is a welcome sound of normalcy.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing.

Keep an ear out for the sweet sounds of the Western Chorus Frog! As of this writing, the Great Salt Lake Shorelands Preserve is currently closed due to COVID-19. Make sure to follow the preserve’s Facebook page to see the latest updates, and in the meantime, you can scout out other spots like nearby ponds or fields to hear the frogs’ calls.
