See Mr Toad in Stroud

Froglife was excited to hear about the fifth annual Stroud Festival of Nature, which provides a great opportunity to learn more about local wildilfe, including amphibians and reptiles. 

The festival takes place on Saturday 8 September from 11am until 6pm in the beautiful grounds of Stratford Park, Stroud. 

Ellen Winters from the Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust will be talking to people about toads and hoping to restart Toad Patrols in the Stroud area.  Froglife Toad Patroller Anne will also have a stand, hoping to recruit more keen volunteers to help with her local Toad Patrol in Pitchcombe.  The new Gloucestershire Amphibian and Reptile Group will also be there to share their passion for wildife with locals.

Pop along to the Stroud Festival of Nature to learn more about toads and what you can do to help

This is a free event where the public can not only learn about what is happening in the countryside around them, but also engage in family friendly nature based activities in Stratford Park.

As well as exploring the stalls and taking part in treasure hunts, crafts, art, etc, visitors are encouraged to bring picnics, relax on the lawns beneath the trees and explore the park’s arboretum, woodland and wilder areas.

There is also an exciting production of The Wind in the Willows suitable for all ages which starts by the museum at 3pm.  Tickets are available here.  

We hope everyone has a great day!
