Ponds, frogs and newts day at Inshes Park

Anyone interested in amphibians, bugs and the sorts of beasties that may be found lurking around in water is invited to come along to a special free family event in Inshes Park, Inverness on Saturday 18 April. 

Running from 1pm to 4pm the event will focus on the important role urban ponds play in the city for residents and for wildlife and provide information on how you can help with an exciting new project that The Highland Council are running in 2015. 

Marcia Rae, the Council’s Intern Research Assistant with the Planning, Development and Infrastructure Service said:  “This is a great chance for families to come along and find out more about the fascinating creatures that can be found thriving in ponds at Inshes Park. The park is a safe haven for lots of wildlife so we’ll be hoping to spot some of them and learn more about their habitats." 

The event is free and people can just turn up on the day. There is no need to book places, anyone interested should just meet up with Marcia beside the car park. For further details  please get in touch with Marcia at marcia.rae@highland.gov.uk or telephone her on 702086.
