Area Groups in North Lincolnshire

Hello from Barton Area Group!

There are nearly 100 Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust nature reserves, of which 7 are on the South Humber Bank not far from Barton. To learn more about these nature reserves by guided walks and indoor talks, keep an eye on this webpage.

Evening meetings are held at Ness End Farm at Far Ings nature reserve which is the center of the groups activities. Be it birds, bats or butterflies we have local experts to guide you.

If you need exercise, but not a gym, then try out our Wednesday or Sunday work parties. They provide a rewarding and companionable way to keep fit whilst supporting wildlife locally. 

For more information on our events, follow our Facebook page or get in touch with us below. We look forward to meeting you!
