This summer, the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust is exploring the seashore and uncovering the magic of the marine world.

Special events are being for National Marine Week at the beginning of August. Everyone is encouraged to look beyond the sand castles; to explore Lincolnshire’s wild coast, get to know some of the amazing marine creatures that usually stay hidden beneath the waves or buried in the sand and discover the wildlife of Lincolnshire’s Living Seas.
