Pop Goes the Weasel!

Our next Big Wildlife Watch event is on May 12th at 2 pm, when Jenny MacPherson from the Vincent Wildlife Trust (VWT)  shares her knowledge of stoats and weasels, and demonstrates how to set up baited hair tubes to detect them.

Following this free workshop, there will be opportunities to be involved  in further stoat and weasel hair tube surveys around mid Wales between June and September.   Read more about the stoat and weasel project on the VWT website.

The stoat and weasel workshop will last about 2 hours – no experience needed  (not suitable for children under 8). Tea, coffee and biscuits £1 per person. Booking preferred but not essential – click here to book.

Why not join us for our regular volunteer morning first (10am – 1pm), and make a day of it?

If you would like to take your knowledge of mammals to a new level, there are still a couple of places left on the ‘Understanding British Mammals II  (Predators and Hunters)’  course  from 20 -22 July 2012, 10 am to 4.30 pm.
