OlympianOctober 18, 2013 

The U.S. Department of Fish and Wildlife has scheduled a public hearing in Lacey Oct. 21 on a proposal to protect the Oregon spotted frog under the federal Endangered Species Act.

The hearing is set for 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.  at the Norman Worthington Conference Center, at St. Martin's University, 5300 Pacific Ave. S.E., Lacey.

The federal fish and wildlife agency proposed on Aug. 29 that the frog, which is native to the South Sound region, is a threatened species, and warrants additional protection.

Interested parties have until Nov. 12 to comment on the proposed listing.
