Calling all naturalists of the future and their families – come and be part of something important!

In collaboration with Aberystwyth University and to coincide with the opening of the new exhibition the ‘Living Wales’, we are launching ‘The Living Quarry’ to monitor the species that live here at CAT and to get a better understanding our little slice of the natural world. Join us in building up a living history!

We will be monitoring change in real time throughout the seasons and beyond – the missing component…? You!

With your explorer pack in tow, equipped with binoculars, magnifying glasses and more, head out to discover the habitats at CAT and collect data from the world around you.

Activities and explorer packs are FREE with entry.

Sessions will be setting off from the Living Wales exhibition all day.

Can’t wait to see you there!
