Join your local Area Group

Our local Area Groups are made up of volunteers who organise local meetings and events, fundraise and promote the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust locally. We currently have 16 Area Groups listed below who tend to meet up once a month to take part in a variety of events, from wildlife talks and workshops, to guided walks and conservation activities.

As a member you'll receive regular newsletters and programmes of events. By attending the meetings you can learn about wildlife, the Wildlife Trust and, if you wish, get actively involved. The groups are always pleased to hear from new members. 

Please come along to an event, you will be most welcome.

During the winter months we provide a series of illustrated talks, while during

the summer months we visit various areas for walks.
