Every month from April to October the Lincolnshire Naturalists meet somewhere in the county to study and record the wildlife of a particular site or area. Often these are important conservation sites, Nature Reserves or Sites of Special Scientific Interest, sometimes locations where there is normally no public access.
These are social, as well as scientific, meetings, usually involving a picnic lunch or visit to a nearby hostelry! The results of the meetings are written up in 'The Lincolnshire Naturalist'.
Grid references for these sites refer to parking or meeting areas and members should meet here in plenty of time prior to the meeting they wish to attend.
Our indoor meetings are held in Lincoln. Most common are lectures and slide shows, but we also hold identification workshops for both beginners and those who want to develop their expertise.
There is an annual recorders' meeting, where we recapitulate on the wildlife highlights of the previous year. To leaven the Annual General Meeting the years' honorary president gives a presentation on his or her particular interest in wildlife and this is reproduced in full in 'The Lincolnshire Naturalist'.
