The toads and frogs of Ryder Lake thank you in advance for your generosity.

Fraser Valley Conservancy is holding a fundraiser on Friday, Aug. 19 to support its Amphibian Protection Project in the Ryder Lake area.

Volunteers have been night monitoring adult amphibians during the spring and organizing the annual migration event for juvenile western toads every summer. Monies raised through donations during the year helps to pay for the amphibian monitoring, traffic control during the toadlet migration and possibly in the future, for a tunnel structure and fencing.

Tickets are $10 for chicken/spaghetti dinner on Aug. 19 and one beverage at the Jolly Miller Pub at 5865 Vedder Rd. For tickets you can stop by or contact Suzie at suzie@fraservalleyconservancy.ca
