Clean Up Litter for Frogs


When it comes to breathing, humans have lungs, fish have gills, and frogs have…skin? You read that right! Frogs have what is called permeable skin, which means they can absorb oxygen through it. The bad news is that oxygen isn’t the only thing they absorb. They can also soak up whatever chemicals and pollutants are nearby, so it’s very important that we keep their habitats clean!

For today’s Eco-Activity, we’re going to clean up litter for frogs!

Tips for your cleanup:

  1. Accept the Stash the Trash Mission in the Earth Rangers App to help guide you on your cleanup.
  2. Make sure you have an adult with you to help you stay safe.
  3. Check the weather. If it’s sunny, don’t forget to wear sunscreen!
  4. Sort as you pick up. Keep your recycling and garbage in separate bags so you can dispose of them properly when you’re done.
