BOISE, Idaho — The Morrison Knudsen Nature Center is hosting a national celebration and dedication of four new Frog Forever Stamps. The stamps will begin hopping on cards and letters starting on July 9.

Idaho Department Fish and Game representatives, government officials and frog experts will join the U.S. Postal Service at the ceremony. There will be an unveiling of a large replica of the frog stamps at the ceremony. Two of the four frog species shown on the stamps live in Idaho: the Pacific Tree and Northern Leopard frogs. The even is free and open to the public.

A temporary Post Office will be established at the MK Nature Center from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on July 9 to sell the new stamps, stamp-related products and offer the First-Day-of-Issue Postmark, which can be attached for free to anything that has current First-Class postage attached.

News of the stamps is being share with the hashtag #FrogStamps. Dedication ceremonies are encouraged to RSVP to the event. You can pre-order the stamps here.
