The Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust is launching a brand new Wildlife Watch club for children living in the Louth Area. The launch, on Sunday 15 May, will be at Red Hill Nature Reserve

Members of the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust group in Louth have come together to help children discover wildlife. The launch event is from 2pm to 4pm at Red Hill nature reserve near Gouceby and will involve exploring and minibeasting, amongst other really wild things!

Wildlife Watch is the junior club of the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust, and is a fun way to learn about, and get closer to nature. It is aimed at young people aged between six and fourteen.

The launch event will take place in the Coronation Meadow at Red Hill, in celebration of the Queen’s 90th birthday. It's free to join in so why not take a picnic and make a day of it!

Booking is not essential, but would be helpful. Please contact organiser Avril Huke for more information or to book: or phone 01507 605158.

Wildlife Watch Organiser for the County, Mary Porter, said:

“We currently have ten Wildlife Watch Groups active in the county, from as far apart as Far Ings on the Humber, and Bourne in the south of the county. The groups are mainly run by volunteers who give up their time to share their enthusiasm for wildlife and wild places with children who often don’t get the opportunities that we had when we were young.

"The new Louth Group is going to be extra special – it is our adult members Area Group of the Wildlife Trust who noticed a need in the Louth area for a children’s wildlife club. Rather than sitting around waiting for it to happen, they have organised it themselves! You don’t need to be a member to come to this event. If your children love nature, come along and see what it’s all about”.
