The Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust are currently working on an exciting 3 year Heritage Lottery Funded Project to inspire the next generation of young botanists while we create a new plant herbarium (archive of plant specimens) in partnership with the Natural History Museum in London. We have put together a training programme in botanical identification which will continue until 2020 and will help to develop skills in botanical identification and surveying; vital skills to build a career in wildlife conservation.

Next training sessions: Heathland Flora ID training, Tuesday 14th August
We are very lucky to have Neil Pike from Natural England to deliver another free plant identification session with you on the 14th August as part of our Young Botanists group (#LoveLincsPlants). The day will involve a morning classroom session where you will learn more about heathland ecology, its nature conservation value and some of the key indicator species. After lunch we will take a short trip to our Kirkby Moor heathland Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) near Woodhall Spa to take look at some of the key heathland plants in the field. Don’t worry if you have not attended a session before. These are aimed at beginners and you will be with people of your age group who are just starting out in the world of plant spotting.
