Education is at the heart of the work of the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust.  Last year (November), with funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund and Waste Recycling Environmental Ltd (WREN), the Trust launched a three-year project: the Education and Community Action Project or ECAP.

Mary Porter, Education Development Officer said "For over 50 years the Trust has encouraged educational use of nature reserves, primarily at our residential field centre at Gibraltar Point National Nature Reserve but also at other sites. This work has expanded rapidly since the start of the Education and Community Action Project. We have new and experienced education staff; who have already come up with new and stimulating ideas for all ages groups and abilities both on nature reserves and visiting schools and community groups."
