Show and tell drop in session with Scottish Geology Trust @ St Cyrus NNR

18 September @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm

- Free

A celebration of everything rocky and pebbly at St Cyrus NNR and beyond, as part of the Scottish Geology Trust’s Festival: ‘Scotland’s iconic landscapes and rugged coastlines have been shaped by the elements over countless millennia. The rocks beneath our feet hold the secrets of our planet’s past. They are our foundation, influencing our culture and legends, and provide endless opportunities for enjoyment and discovery.’

Bring your rocks and come along to see Scottish Geology Trust Volunteer John Taylor and local geologists Robert Scott and Morag Smith. What stories will they have in store?

Also have an unclose look at some prepared and labelled local rocks, agates and semi-precious stones, including an ultra violet gazebo ‘cave’, see which rocks glow under UV!

This is a joint event between Scottish Geology Trust and NatureScot.

There are public toilets next to the visitor centre, including two with baby changing tables and an accessible changing places toilet (RADAR key required for access). The visitor centre and car park are wheelchair accessible but the wider reserve unfortunately is not.

Drop in event. Free, no booking necessary.
