Home » Community Open Day

Welcome the new season with a whole host of seasonal, family friendly activities.

Always wanted to have a go at pond-dipping? This is the perfect chance to explore an aquatic habitat and observe the different creatures that live there! Or if gardening is your forte, take part in our spring planting sessions to learn more about the plant species in season at this time of year.

Be sure to grab yourself a nature-spotting activity sheet and ‘tracker pack’ when you arrive, too — including all the essentials to help you get up close with nature throughout the day.

An opportunity to discuss CAT’s future plans

Whilst on-site, you’re invited to share your feedback on plans to create a world-class visitor experience and green skills hub at the Centre, with interactive sessions throughout the day.

From the current visitor experience and skills and education offer to our physical spaces and buildings — we want to capture as many ideas as possible, no matter how big or small, so please do come along to say hello!
