Leap into Action

It's time to give some notice to the little creatures of our planet, the frog. Governor Deval Patrick has declared today, February 29, 2008, "Massachusetts Day of the Frog".

Of course naturally this day was chosen because it is the leap day of the leap year. Zoos and aquariums across the country have declared this year the Year of the Frog.

In honor of this celebration, Franklin Park Zoo is having a Leap Day Celebration tomorrow from 11:00 am to 3:00p.m. There will be a leap frog competitions for children, along with crafts and other various activities.

The zoo hopes to bring awareness to these creatures who are quickly becoming on the endangered species list.
