Hampshire ARG (HARG) Committee Meeting
Following a recent reorganisation, Hampshire ARG (HARG) is to be completely reconstituted and will be recruiting a new committee, to help coordinate the volunteer effort towards conserving amphibians and reptiles in this important county. We are fortunate in that our county covers a huge geographic area and a very diverse breadth of habitat including: the Isle of Wight, the New Forest National Park, the South Downs National Park, as well as many other unspoiled areas, including as Woolmer Forest. It is therefore unsurprising that we are host to 12 out of the 13 native amphibians and reptiles in UK, including rarities such as the natterjack toad, sand lizard and smooth snake, and wherever you live in the county there will be opportunities to survey and monitor an assemblage of amphibian and reptile species.
If you have some spare time, and would like to join our committee, then please come to a meeting at 1:00 pm on Saturday 3rd June, at the Golden Lion in Winchester (www.thegoldenlionwinchester.co.uk), and find out more about what this would involve. This will be an informal meeting over lunch, followed by a brisk walk on the nearby Butterfly Conservation reserve on Magdalen Hill Down.
We look forward to seeing you there.
