Things to do over the Easter holidays
Monday 3rd April 2017
Survey ladybirds, hunt for Easter eggs or go on a springtime stroll with the family: there's lots of possibilities of things to do this Easter. You could even help save our seas by joining us in sending a message to the Prime Minister.
See how many ladybirds you can spot and take part in our ladybird survey.
Did you know 22 different species of ladybird have been seen in Lincolnshire?
Look in our garden, your local park or anywhere in the countryside and make a note of what you’ve spotted. A form to fill in with your sightings can be downloaded from our Ladybird Survey page.
Hunt for mysterious marine eggs
Discover eggs with a difference on our Easter Egg Trail at Gibraltar Point.
Instead of searching for chocolate covered eggs, learn about life beneath the waves and find the eggs of marine animals.
The self-guided trail can be collected from the visitor centre and all the eggs are hidden in the woodland.
- £3 per person with a chocolate treat as a prize when the trail is completed
- Available from Saturday 1 until Monday 17 April, between 10.30am and 3pm

Save our Seas
Colour a sealife bracelet and send a message to the Prime Minister Teresa May.
There’s something you can do to make a real difference to our sea. Prime Minister Theresa May has already committed to creating more of these protected areas, but we want to make sure as many as possible are saved for wildlife.
You can colour and customise a pair of awesome paper wristbands; then them with wear with pride to show that you are a friend of the sea. As well as sporting one yourself we need you to make one for the Prime Minister, so she can become a friend of the sea too.
Become a friend of the sea: find out more and download the bracelet
