Releasing frogs form eggs found in Virginia

Asked April 24, 2013, 1:09 PM EDT

Good morning: My child's preschool has been raising tadpoles from frog eggs found in Virginia. We believe that they are wood frogs. Two years ago, we did the same with baby frogs reared from frog eggs (also probably wood frogs) found in the Poconos. Is it ok to release these Virginia-acquired frogs into a West Philadelphia community garden? We think our old Poconos frogs have survived and live there still. It seems wood frogs are widely distributed throughout North America. Thank you in advance, Alexis
