www.frogs-ny.org Founded in 1990, the Friends of the Great Swamp (FrOGS) is a volunteer non-profit organization made up of residents and neighbors who have been working to preserve the Great swamp Watershed of Putnam County and Dutchess County, New York. We have a Board of Directors that meets once a month throughout the year to discuss issues of local environmental concern and to guide the activities of the organization. Our mission is to preserve and protect the health of the Great Swamp watershed through research, education, and conservation. We undertake activities to preserve, protect and promote the functions and integrity of the Great Swamp wetland and its upland watersheds in Putnam and Dutchess Counties, New York. The various committees within the group work together to collect and share information, promote education programs, encourage wise land-use decisions, and assist in watershed protection planning.
