Columbia Spotted Frog

Alberta Home

Illustration of the Columbia Spotted FrogIn Alberta, Spotted Frogs are found primarily in the montane and subalpine natural regions from Waterton Lakes National Park to Jasper National Park. The species also inhabits areas of the Foothills Parkland ecoregion, which is part of the Foothills sub-region of the Parkland Natural Region.

In Alberta, populations of Columbia Spotted Frogs are roughly concentrated in the Waterton/Crowsnest region, and in the Banff/Bow Valley and Jasper National Park areas. No sightings have been reported north of Jasper National Park. There are a limited number of records between those in the Waterton Lakes National Park/Crowsnest Pass area, and those in the Banff National Park/Bow Valley corridor.
