Frogs Star In Aquarium Exhibit

A new summer program should have the kids "hopping" with excitement at the J.L. Scott Marine Education Center .

Frogs are the main attraction at the new "Vanishing Amphibians" exhibit.

The center is hosting a traveling display from the Smithsonian Institution. The exhibit includes plenty of close-up pictures, along with a variety of actual frogs and toads.

The educational focus includes a lesson about how environmental pressures are threatening many species of amphibians.

"It focuses on the habitat destruction and pollution problems that are impacting the native frog populations both in this country and in Central and South America," said marine educator, Howard Walters.

Admission to opening night on Tuesday is free. After the opening, there will be a small entrance fee.
