National Botanic Garden of Wales

Join us at our Wildlife Centre at the National Botanic Garden of Wales in Carmarthenshire.

Full of excitement, engagement and wildlife – we aim to inspire and educate those who love wildlife and want to know more about the creatures of the garden.
From Pond Dipping, to Nature walks and even species events throughout the year – there is a great deal happening from the centre.


There are events running every month, from identification workshops, to nest box building – there’s also some seasonal events!


Every week and during half-term, there are activities running. Depending on the month, there could be pond dipping, minibeast hunting, guided walks. Craft activities run every activity day after 3pm.
You can view what the monthly activity is on the Events page.


Conservation is a core part of what we do, we have a passion for conserving species we love for other generations to experience. You can get to know more of the big projects we are working on, but also support the projects.
