Bullfrogs have been found in Idaho, just south of the border!  If they reach the Creston area, these voracious predators could have major impacts on the amazing biodiversity of our area.

  • Bullfrogs prey on, and out-compete, native frog species, including the endangered Northern Leopard Frog and the protected Pacific Chorus Frog and Columbia Spotted Frog.
  • The only population of Northern Leopard Frogs in the Northern Rockies is in Creston… and they are now threatened by Bullfrogs!
  • Bullfrogs also eat native snakes, ducklings, sometimes even kittens!

We need your help to prevent a Bullfrog Invasion!

The native Northern Leopard frog is a species at risk that could be in danger if bullforgs move into their pond!
