We tell this story like no one else on Earth!

300 million years ago in the Coal Age, the one world Pangea took shape. 200 million years ago in the Age of Dinosaurs, it began to rip apart, and the modern world was born.

The Cliffs of Fundy is the home of the legendary Kluscap and steeped in his legends. The origin of the Five Islands, the Three Sisters, and the special significance of Partridge Island are but a few of these stories and places.

The Mi’kmaq were the first geologists of the Geopark, selecting rocks for their points and tools, and for ceremonial use in sweat lodges.

The Cliffs of Fundy honours the ethical space of the Mi’kmaq people and their oral traditions of cultural geoheritage.

We are thinking of our friends on Newfoundland and in our sister aspiring Discovery Geopark, whose Chair John Norman, Mayor of Bonavista, just sent the message:

What is a Geopark?

A Geopark is a designation that attracts tourists wishing to explore the connections between geology, local communities, culture, and nature. Geoparks are designed to promote tourism and celebrate a region’s uniqueness, and do not prohibit any land use.
