Amphibians of the Chicago Region

presented by Joe Cavataio

What’s a mudpuppy?  Can toads give you warts?  Where can I find a tree frog?  Joe Cavataio will share his extensive knowledge Chicago’s frogs, toads, and salamanders,  including natural history and recent conservation efforts helping to ensure the long-term survival of these intriguing animals.

Joe is a lifelong naturalist with a focus on herpetology, particularly in urban areas and where the natural landscape has been altered by humans. Food scientist during the week and field herper on weekends, he enjoys getting wet and dirty in pursuit of reptiles and amphibians and doing all he can within his power to play a role in conservation.
