In partnership with the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust Lincoln Area Group, the Lincolnshire Naturalists’ Union organise a series of workshops aimed at those interested in expanding their knowledge of particular groups.

Workshops for 2018:

Mining bees – June 2nd (David Sheppard)
Hoverflies – July 28th – (Phil Porter & David Denman)
Ground beetles – August 11th (Alan Lazenby)
Plant galls – September 8th (Jan Rousseau)
Bryophytes – October 6th (Steven Heathcote)
Fungi – November 3rd (Ray Halstead)

These workshops are held at Whisby Nature Park near Lincoln, in the Lafarge Education Building from 12.30 pm to 4.30 pm. They are free of charge with refreshments included. Booking is essential – please contact Richard Davidson on 01522 525725 or email

The aim is not to turn people into experts in an afternoon, but to cascade knowledge and enthusiasm for particular subjects so that participants can go away better equipped to follow them up on their own and also to encourage interest in a broader range of subjects both entomological and botanical. Most workshops include inside learning generally about the subject and looking at specimens followed by time outside in the field following this up.
