There will be loads of things to see and do on the day including guided walks of the site, nature guides and children’s activities, pond dipping with Mike Dilger and ‘Open Air Laboratory’ activities. Refreshments from local producers will be available to purchase. You can also get involved with the Minera Quarry bio-blitz being co-ordinated by Cofnod (North Wales’s Biological Record Centre) – you may even discover a new species to add to our ever-growing list for the site!
After many years of campaigning and negotiating, the Wildlife Trust finally took ownership of Minera Quarry from Tarmac in Summer 2017 and has spent the last few months making the site safe and accessible to the public. Whereas the quarry was previously closed to the public save for access by one solitary public footpath, the site will now be open for people to freely explore where it is safe to do so.
