Discovery Day includes a FREE day pass to The Eden Project, an educational charity working to connect people with each other and the natural world through a host of striking contemporary gardens, displays, and experiences. As well as the infamous biomes, the Outdoor Gardens has a Wild Cornwall area of Cornish landscape demonstrating the wealth of Cornwall's landscapes, habitats, and wildlife. 


As a charity the Trust must hold an Annual General Meeting (AGM) every year where Trustees are voted onto or step down from Council and our previous year's accounts are accepted. All Trust members can attend and vote at our AGM and we encourage our members to use this right. On the day we like to add additional entertainment and interest by way of talks delivered by Trust staff and guest speakers. This is the 'Discovery' part of the day, where attendees get to learn in depth about the Trust's conservation work. We welcome everyone, not just members, to attend the talks to learn about how Cornwall Wildlife Trust protects Cornwall's wildlife and wild places. We also have a range of information stands and sales goods on the day, including our Wild Cornwall calendar.
