CAT is a world-renowned eco centre that researches and supports greener ways of living.
Our 7-acre visitor centre offers hands-on renewable energy displays, a wide variety of examples of environmentally responsible building and beautiful organic gardens. A further 17 acres stretch up into the hills surrounding the centre with stunning views of the UNESCO Dyfi Biosphere from our Quarry Trail.
We have been welcoming school groups to our visitor centre for over 30 years and pride ourselves on how we engage young people with subjects surrounding climate change and sustainability. Our tours and workshops are ideal for a day visit and our on-site accommodation provides a fantastic base for a school trip in the region or for a more in-depth multi-day learning experience at CAT.
Explore CAT's renewable energy displays, productive gardens, sustainable buildings and managed woodlands.
CAT’s Eco Cabins are situated just off our main site in a stunning setting overlooking the CAT allotments.
Our workshops address sustainability across the curriculum and many include issues related to global citizenship.
