Watch out Toads About!
Holyrood Park, 29 March 2014
Come along and help the Rangers with the annual toad migration.
Every year thousands of toads are killed every year as they cross the road to reach their breeding grounds.
The toads cannot climb the kerbs and so need a little assistance!
Join the Rangers for a walk up the High road to Dunsapie, collecting the toads that are stranded and placing them safely in Dunsapie Loch.
Gate to the High Road, beside St. Margaret’s Loch
A family event, suitable for all ages. Route involves fairly steep walk up the High Road from St. Margaret’s Loch to Dunsapie and then back down to the Education Centre.
Warm, waterproof clothing and sturdy footwear with good grips. A snack and a drink. Rubber gloves (though these can be provided).
Meadowbank Car Park (beside St. Margaret’s Loch). Due to Sunday road closures access will be from the Meadowbank entrance only.
Booking is essential
There is a limit of 40 places available for this event.
