We have discovered approximately 25 different species of amphibians and reptiles within and adjacent to the Willow Creek Riparian Preserve. Some of these species breed within the Preserve and others just visit depending upon dry or wet conditions. Some of them are very welcome around the house and some not so much! The most impressive discovery was that of the Lowland Leopard Frog - it was previously thought to not exist in the Willow Creek drainage. Arizona Game and Fish biologist were able to identify it and confirm this species occurrence in the creek. Check out our
