The life of a salmon

Primary school offer

We'll look at the life cycle of the salmon and the fishing industry that occurred at Carrick-a-Rede in the past. Geared with binoculars we have clues to solve as we make our way to the bridge and one of the highlights of course is crossing over it. Other activities also include bird watching and bird identification from the island.

Industry and geology

A close look at the geology of the site, investigation of the rock types that can be found here and even a search for some fossils are part of this learning activity.

We'll consider the use of this place in the past and we'll examine in an interactive way the old quarry industry and fishing industry.

An exciting programme which leads to the bridge and beyond. During the programme, the biodiversity found on site will also be investigated.
