Get Involved

There are a number of opportunities for volunteering across the Limewoods area including the Woodland Workout Scheme, Conservation volunteers, Butterfly Conservation and the Lincolnshire Dormouse Group.

Woodland Workout Scheme Launched in Lincolnshire

Volunteer with the Forestry Commission to help manage and conserve your local woodlands while learning new skills, improving your health and wellbeing and making new friends. For more information visit the Forestry Commission website.

Lincoln Conservation Volunteers

Lincoln Conservation Group carries out practical conservation work in and around Lincoln, helping to conserve the natural history and biodiversity of the area. This includes hedge laying, woodland management, tree and shrub planting, pond restoration and grassland management.

For more information on volunteering with the group visit the Lincoln Conservation Group website.

Butterfly Conservation

The Lincolnshire branch of butterfly conservation organises regular work parties to maintain and improve important butterfly habitats across the Limewoods area.

The group also encourages recording of butterfly and moth species across Lincolnshire to build up a better picture of their distribution, and is involved in an ongoing survey and management project in the Lincolnshire Limewoods to monitor the distribution of Brown Hairstreak populations. You can find out more about the Butterfly Conservation group on their website.

Lincolnshire Dormouse Group

Formed in 2010 to attract new trainees and helpers for dormouse monitoring, and to increase the manpower available for dormouse habitat management.

The group meets monthly through the year. In winter they carry out rotational coppice management, to ensure that there is always ideal habitat available, together with path clearing (especially bramble) so that they can reach the boxes in summer.

Between April and October they check boxes and tubes each month, recording the presence of nests and dormice, and taking measurements to check the health of any animals present.
