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.

We hope to run workshops during 2021 but the changing nature of the situation may mean alterations or cancellations at short notice. Check back regularly and keep an eye on Twitter and Facebook for updates.

These workshops are held at Whisby Nature Park near Lincoln, in the Lafarge Education Building from 1pm 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.
