Welcome to the Amphibian & Reptile Group for South Lancashire!
Habitat Management Task Days - Witton Park, Blackburn
In December 2008, ARGSL created six new ponds in a secluded part of Witton Park, Blackburn. Since then the ponds and their surroundings have become an excellent habitat for amphibians, supporting common frogs, common toads and both smooth and palmate newts. The area has been monitored and managed by ARGSL for the past six years, demonstrating a long term commitment to projects that the group is involved with. This winter will be a good time to tackle some important habitat management work to maintain the areas value for amphibians; so if you're able to help out you will be very welcome! If you'd like to take part, please email argls*btinternet. com.
The dates for the habitat management work are;
