Indoor work: Winter’s grip doesn’t affect construction at Habitat for Humanity Omaha, so don’t let the elements stop you. For the next several weeks, the focus will be on indoor projects. No experience is required. Register to volunteer at habitatomaha.org/volunteer. Groups should contact Tammie Dodge, Habitat Omaha’s director of volunteer services, at tdodge@habitatomaha.org.

FrogWatch: Fontenelle Forest needs volunteers for the local FrogWatch USA chapter. FrogWatch USA is an association of zoo and aquarium citizen science programs designed for long-term monitoring of frog and toad populations. The program has the ability to collect more data, over a larger area, than a single researcher or even a group of researchers. Fontenelle Forest will host a training session from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday at Fontenelle Forest Nature Center, 1111 Bellevue Blvd. North in Bellevue. Participants will learn how to identify Nebraska frogs and toads. This is a family-friendly volunteer opportunity, but training is for participants 16 and older. Volunteers are encouraged to monitor their locations at least twice a week from March into August beginning one-half hour after sunset. For questions or to become a FrogWatch volunteer, contact Cori Tejral at fontenelleforestfrogwatch@gmail.
