Tweets & Tree Frogs is an educational organization that explores backyard wildlife. We define "backyard wildlife" as any creature that lives in close proximity to humans (neighborhoods, parks, urban areas, etc.). We think it's pretty exciting that the animals one community considers ordinary seem extraordinary to someone in a different community.
