Watch that frog
This year, the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission unveiled a newly designed wildlife conservation license plate, and UNCG faculty and alumni are the initiators behind the design. In 2014, Ann Somers and Professor Emeritus Catherine Matthews guided two UNCG students, Rachel Carico-Bair and Amy Gonsalves, in hosting an art competition. The winning design features the Pine Barrens treefrog found in the pine forests and sandhills of south-central North Carolina. The plate is available through the N.C. Department of Motor Vehicles and costs $30, with $20 from each plate going to the agency’s Nongame and Endangered Wildlife Fund.
