Hello everyone


As part of our Heritage Lottery Funded Project, Love Lincs Plants, we have organised a free Field Identification Studies Certificate (FISC) assessment day with Natural England on Thursday 5th July - Whisby Ed. Centre near Lincoln. This is a chance for people to discover where they are in terms of a recognised skill level in botanical identification. This assessment is administered by the Botanical Society of Britain and Ireland (BSBI) and is the first time this assessment is being held in Lincolnshire. For  more information on FISCs see here:

https://bsbi.org/field-skills

Priority will be given to people not employed in the ecology/conservation sector to enable attendees to gain a qualification to help establish a career or work towards building their confidence in botanical recording in the county.

I have spaces available on a free Field Identification Studies

Certificate (FISC) assessment day on Thursday 5th July

at Whisby Education Centre led by Alex Prendergast from Natural England in association with the Botanical Society of Britain and Ireland (BSBI).

The FISC assessment is regarded as the industry standard for assessing botanical survey skill level. For more information about the botanical skills pyramid and the assessment see the BSBI website here: https://bsbi.org/field-skills

This is the first FISC assessment to be held in Lincolnshire and will be an opportunity to meet other Lincolnshire botanists while also finding out how you can help with our Heritage Lottery Funded #LoveLincsPlants project.  To book on please send an email to: Aidan Neary aneary@lincstrust.co.uk

TO HELP ASSESS YOUR ELIGIBILITY FOR THIS ASSESSMENT PLEASE PROVIDE DETAILS OF YOUR CURRENT EMPLOYMENT i.e. ecologist, student, unemployed. PRIORITY WILL BE GIVEN TO THOSE NOT ALREADY EMPLOYED IN THE ECOLOGY/CONSERVATION SECTOR. We will not pass your details on to any third party and you may request to be removed from our lists at any time by e-mailing (info@lincstrust.co.uk) or writing to Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust, Banovallum House, Manor House Street, Horncastle, LN9 5HF stating that you wish to be removed from the project botanists contact list.
