"As frogs awaken after a long, cold, winter hibernation they begin to sing in harmony. This is the first sign spring has arrived. These songs are long awaited by our people as an indication of the changing season and warmer weather ahead. Not only are frogs a symbol of spring to the Coast Salish People, they represent the sharing of knowledge and their ability to adapt."
