The POD Playground's net area is currently under maintenance and will be reopened soon. The remainder of the playground is open to enjoy.


As part of the broader ACT and NSW FrogWatch program, the National Arboretum Canberra is monitoring frog biodiversity in four wetlands at the Arboretum site:

Since 2010, the project has been examining long term changes in the frog biota of the Arboretum, and the impact they will have on the frog fauna. The project focuses on larger scale environmental responses, as well as habitat changes at the local landscape.

Findings are regularly reported to the ACT FrogWatch Census on the Ginninderra Catchment Group's website.

Research investigators: Dr Roger Hnatiuk, (Chief investigator), Member of the Friends of the National Arboretum Canberra and FrogWatch ACT volunteer.
Citizen science volunteers who are members of the Friends of the National Arboretum.
