Oregon spotted Frog

One of the species that is missing from the county is an amphibian known as the Oregon Spotted Frog. Its status is listed as threatened by Oregon Fish and Wildlife. They are found in areas with perennial water that has shallow areas and aquatic plants. There has never been a record in this county, but I believe there may be one out there, or that the habitat will be created through restoration eventually.
