We will be working with the Museum team and other local sites, organisations and experts to host a special event with activities and talks - all on an aquatic wildlife theme. There will be a chance to meet some of the stunning live amphibians from the Museum’s vivarium, learn about tropical fish conservation with Bolton Museum’s top Aquarists, have a go at arts and crafts, and find out more about local volunteering opportunities and places to explore. We will also be promoting our Tuppence a Toad campaign.

Come and join in the fun from 10am to 4pm at The Manchester Museum, Oxford Road, M13 9PL on Saturday 9th July 2011.
No booking is necessary and entrance to the Museum is free - some of the activities can be booked on the day and may cost up to £1.50.
