Second Annual ‘Frogs as Bio-indicators'
International Education Summit

In April, 1999, the Center for Global Environmental Education and A Thousand Friends of Frogs held the Second Annual ‘Frogs as Bio-indicators' International Education Summit. Students, educators, and scientists from around the country gathered at Hamline University to discuss issues surrounding amphibian malformations and declines, and environmental stewardship. They also examined the interdisciplinary topics of these issues and formulated new ideas for their integration into environmental and science education curricula. In addition, many international partnerships developed through the course of the summit.

The summit was attended by educators and scientists from the University of California at Berkeley; the Smithsonian Institution; the Declining Amphibian Populations Task Force; the North American Reporting Center for Amphibian Malformations; ITT Fluid Technologies; K-12 schools around the United States; and Minnesota organizations such as the Science Museum, Hennepin and Ramsey Parks, Minnesota Zoo, Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, Minnesota Pollution Control Agency, Hamline University, and local schools.
