Our environment is unique, can you help look after it?

Lincolnshire chalk streams and blow wells are important geological features and provide a unique habitat for native species, but they need looking after.

North East Lincolnshire Council’s ecology team is calling for volunteers to help our wild habitats flourish.

The latest opportunity to get involved is at Kingston Gardens on Friday 28 January from 10:30am to 2pm.

Blow wells are an extremely rare form of artesian spring habitat found only in this area. There are 37 of them between Barton upon Humber and Louth.

The team will be cutting back bramble to open footpaths and access as part of the Lincolnshire Chalk Streams Project.

There are no toilets nearby. Street parking is available but limited on Kingston Avenue, Littlefield Lane, and Chelmsford Avenue.

If you have a passion for nature conservation or just enjoy being outdoors and are willing to lend hand, your help will be greatly appreciated.

If you’d like to join in, please let us know in advance by emailing [email protected].

Volunteers can join in for a couple of hours or all day. All you need is a pair of work gloves, sturdy boots, your enthusiasm, and possibly a packed lunch.
