Urban Naturalist – newts

This weekend (Sat 31st May), Rick Parker, chairman of Bolton Conservation Volunteers will be back at the Museum between 2-4pm to enlighten us about native amphibians, their needs and requirements, and how you can develop an attractive pondlife environment for supporting them. Rick will also show our three native newts, including the Great Crested Newt. Find out how ‘Urban Naturalists’ can help to support this protected species and get some practical experience on identifying the different species of native amphibians.
