Wildlearning - Amphibian Surveying & ID
21 April 2018, 18:00 - 21:00 (Add to calendar)
Join local amphibian and reptile expert, John Baker at Suffolk Wildlife Trust’s beautiful Foxburrow Farm reserve to discover the magic of the county’s newts, toads and frogs.
During this introductory course on the identification, biology, habitats and conservation of Suffolk's amphibians, you will cover simple survey methods so that you can take part in the county-wide survey of this interesting but under-recorded group of animals.
Tutor, John Baker, lives in Suffolk and works with the Amphibian and Reptile Conservation Trust and the network of Amphibian and Reptile Groups around the country (ARG UK) http://www.arc-trust.org/. John has had a lifelong passion for amphibians and reptiles and has been fortunate enough to be able to pursue this interest for much of his career.
As you will be walking around the pond at the reserve, you will need to wear suitable outdoor clothing and stout footwear.
A packed lunch

Tea, coffee & biscuits will be provided and are included in the price of the course.
