These workshops are held at Whisby Nature Park near Lincoln, in the Lafarge Education Building from 12.30 to 4.30 pm. They are free of charge but 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.
