Lost Words

The Lost Words, named as one of Britain’s favourite pieces of nature writing, was created to celebrate and revive once-common “natural” words – from acorn and wren, to conker and dandelion – excised from the Oxford Junior Dictionary. With acrostic spell poems designed to be read aloud and hand-painted illustration, the book captures the irreplaceable magic of language and nature for all ages.

We need your help to raise £6500 to provide a copy of The Lost Words to every primary, junior and special school in Lincolnshire, North Lincolnshire and North-East Lincolnshire. To accompany this beautiful book, we will also provide a copy of The Explorer's Guide to The Lost Words. 

A pamphlet created by The John Muir Trust, is a great teaching aid that ties in with the National Curriculum.

The Lost Words message is closely aligned with Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust’s mission to inspire interest in the natural world and encourage children to make nature part of their everyday life.

How you can help

We need to raise £5,000 via Crowdfunder between 11 June to 9 July 2018. Find out more on the dedicated Lost Words for Lincolnshire Schools website.


We are Lost Word protectors and we didn’t even know it!... Be part of the story –

the ending of which will be wild words tripping off tongues like

laughter and joy.
