In the framework of the European Day of Parks, on 2 June, the workshop "We make a newt of plaster" was held

Coinciding with the exhibition ''My name is Calotriton and I only live in Montseny'', from the Ethnological Museum of the Montseny large and small were invited to the workshop for the elaboration of plaster tritons. From a mould in the shape of the Montseny newt, the participants were able to create their own plaster newt. Once dried and painted, each participant was able to take it home.
