Celebrating Lincolnshire's wonderful plants!

Plants are really important. We eat them, build with them, wear clothes made from them and breathe the oxygen they create. Their value is incalculable.

Botany is the science of understanding plants, which is why we think #BotanyisAce. Plants can tell us so much about our history, environment, climate and medicine.

Thanks to funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust is leading a project to preserve Lincolnshire’s botanical heritage and inspire and train future botanists. This project is called #LoveLincsPlants and also involves the Natural History Museum in London, the Lincolnshire Naturalists’ Union, the Sir Joseph Banks Society and the University of Lincoln.

The project launched in October 2017 and will last three years.

Please check our social media for news on the project.
