We tell these stories like no one else on Earth!

How to Find Us:
The Cliffs of Fundy UNESCO Global Geopark is located along the north shore of the Minas Basin of the Bay of Fundy in Nova Scotia, stretching from Lower Truro in the east to Apple River in the west, a distance of 165 km. Most of our geosites can be accessed by NS highways 2 and 209 as they meander along this awesome coastline.

Highest Tides:
The Bay of Fundy is home to the highest tides in the world, and they have helped to shape our landscape. Visit the amazing cliffs, tidal estuaries, beaches, waterfalls, trails, and lighthouses.

Indigenous Heritage:
This is Mi’kma’ki. We acknowledge that we are on the unceded territory of the Mi’kmaw people who are the ancestral stewards of this place. The Mi’kmaw peoples have inhabited these shores for more than 11, 000 years and we honor and respect their ethical space. We are the home of the legendary Kluskap 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 Cliffs of Fundy Geopark honours the ethical space of the Mi’kmaw people and their oral traditions of cultural geoheritage.

Geological Significance:
Evidence of the Earth’s incredible natural history includes the best example of how the supercontinent Pangea was formed 300 million years ago and broke apart 100 million years later. The massive Cobequid Fault provides a formidable backdrop of our environment.

Mi'kmaq History Month and some great information about the Peace and Friendship Treaties.#cliffsoffundyDid you know?The Peace and Friendship treaties (1725-1786), made between the Mi'kmaq and the British Crown, are often referred to as The Covenant Chain of Treaties, because like a chain, each treaty builds upon the other, strengthening what came before.

The 1725 treaty, negotiated in Boston, became the first-ever Peace and Friendship treaty.To learn more about our treaties and treaty relationships, check out this year's History Month poster at www.mikmaqhistorymonth.ca ...

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.
