Kids can go wild at Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust events over the summer holidays.

From pond dipping and bug hunting to funky flowers and creepy crabs, there are plenty of opportunities to get outdoors and closer to nature on the Wild-Play holiday activities. 

The Wild-Play activities are at Far Ings near Barton-upon-Humber, Gibraltar Point near Skegness, Snipe Dales between Horncastle and Spilsby, and Whisby Nature Park near Lincoln.

For all the events, children must be accompanied by an adult and booking in advance is essential as places are limited.
