Expand your Species with NAARS!

Expand your Species with NAARS!

Many of us enjoy a day out birdwatching - but how about expanding your skills to learning about amphibians and reptiles? The National Amphibian and Reptile Recording Scheme (NAARS) is led by Amphibian and Reptile Conservation Trust (ARC) in partnership with ARG UK. Through volunteer-based surveys, they aim to monitor the conservation status of all UK amphibian and reptile species.
A two day course on amphibian and reptile ID, ecology and all the information you need to take part in the national survey is being held in March at Moorcroft Environment Centre, Walsall. To find out more and book a place (just a few spaces left) download the attached leaflet.
