The last year has shown just how important nature is to our everyday lives. In the absence of other activities, millions of people have accessed the countryside and noticed nature all around them, sometimes for the first time.
Nature is important to people’s health and wellbeing and with the world facing an ecological and climate crisis, the need for people to learn about and respect our wildlife has never been greater.
Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust want to build on the interest in nature that lockdown has generated. However, with visitor centres having been closed and all events and group activities stopped, the Trust needs help to re-open and re-start these activities and is looking for volunteers who would be willing to give up some time to engage with people on their busiest sites (Gibraltar Point, Far Ings and Whisby Nature Park) and group activities such as Wildlife Watch (a nature club for children and families who meet once a month and have fun learning about and nature and carrying out various nature related activities).
