Event description

Description

***We have been fully booked since the beginning of January with a waiting list, so if anyone does need to drop out for unforeseen issues, they should change their booking on Eventbrite. This will give others a chance to attend***

Toad Patrollers and anyone interested in our native toads are all invited to attend this FREE event. It is an opportunity to get together, share ideas and learn more about how best to conserve toads.

Toad Patrols do an excellent job conserving our toads and keep finding new ways of doing it better. The aim of this event is to give our local Toad Patrols an opportunity to share ideas and best practice. We have an excellent range of speakers including local toad patrols, toad experts and toad enthusiasts.

We are aiming to cover: toad ecology, what toads are doing when they aren’t crossing the road, helping toads out of drains, recruiting and managing volunteers, signage, road closures, social media, equipment and funding.
