Thursday Night in the Garden Series — Make a Toad Abode presented by Oxford FCU

June 29, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Learn how to make a Toad Abode with volunteer Susan Weiler.  Frogs and toads are integral to natural insect control in the garden.  They eat slugs, snails, and a wide variety of flying and crawling insects.  Learn how to make a sweet and cozy home to lure (or keep) toads in your garden and help keep pests down naturally.

In addition, Maine Master Naturalist Jana Magnuson will intoduce you to the choir of frogs and toads that can be found in your backyard. Is it a treefrog, a peeper, or maybe a toad? Learn what “hoppy” garden friend makes which call, what attracts them to your yard, and how to keep them healthy. Get creative and make an inviting “toad abode” with McLaughlin Garden Volunteer and craftsperson, Susan Weiler, for your garden or yard. People of all ages and interests are welcome. No fee but an RSVP is appreciated to plan for project supplies. 1 “toad abode” per household please. RSVP by phone to 207-743-8820 or by email to
