The Unheard Voice!

Red Legged Frogs can only be heard under water. You can't hear them unless you are a frog.

Now listen carefully, or someday you may no longer have the opportunity.

"I am a Red Legged Frog, a threatened native species in Oregon. I represent the unheard voice of the Friends of Fields Creek and the wildlife that reside here. We require this streamside, woodland habitat for survival. Much of our habitat has been removed by people to build homes. When they build their homes, our homes are destroyed. We thought that we would be safe if we lived next to the stream. PLEASE PROTECT US by preserving Field's Creek."

Signed by the following Oregon Natives:
Red Legged Frogs
Pacific Tree Frogs (in chorus)
Cut Throat Trout
Juvenile Salmanoid
Douglas Squirrel
Golden-Mantled Squirrel
All birds are in agreement
All insects are in agreement
We need humans to be friends of Field's Creek. We need help and we need it fast. One whole side of our woodland habitat has recently been cleared and gravelled. We aren't familiar with the rules of streamside destruction. If you have wisdom to share in reference to protecting and preserving our homes, please place your comments here for us to review.
