ARG UK Autumn Seminar Series: ARG projects - ice age ponds, moving cycleways and finding adders!
ARG UK Autumn Seminar Series: ARG projects - ice age ponds, moving cycleways and finding adders! In the last of our autumn seminar series we will be hearing from some of our ARGs about what they've been doing during the year. Introduced by our Chair of Trustees, Chris Monk (Derbyshire ARG), we will hear from Will Watson (Herefordshire Amphibian and Reptile Team - HART), about the new National Lottery funded 'Ice Age Pond Project' which aims to map the biodiversity and geology of the ancient and unique glacial kettle-hole ponds in Herefordshire, and engage land managers and the wider community with their conservation. Then we will hear from Stephen Green of Cornwall College, and Cornwall Reptile and Amphibian Group (CRAG), who will be telling us how they moved the route of a proposed cycle path to save their local reptiles. And finally we will be hearing from Ben Rigsby and Harry Searle-Webb of GlosARG and ARAG who will be telling us more about how they used their field craft experiences to find new and unexpected adder sites in South Gloucestershire. Presentations will be followed by a general discussion with an opportunity for participants to ask questions or raise other points.
