Cliffs of Fundy Update Spring 2018

Application Progress 
The Steering Committee of the Cliffs of Fundy Aspiring Geopark has submitted its application to the Canadian Geoparks Network, which will deliberate and determine if Cliffs of Fundy will proceed to the next step in becoming a Global Geopark. This is an exciting time for the committee! Spring and Summer are going to be busy with preparations for a possible site visit from the Canadian evaluation team.


Ambassador Program
Engaging with the vibrant communities within the Geopark is an important step for Cliffs of Fundy. To facilitate this, an Ambassador Program is currently being developed. This will allow for mutually beneficial partnerships between the Geopark and the businesses and heritage sites within. Stay tuned for updates!

Networking
Representatives from the Steering Committee will be attending the Canadian National Committee for Geoparks Workshop in Ottawa this June, and the International UNESCO Conference on Global Geoparks at the Adamello-Brenta UNESCO Global Geopark in Italy this September.

Today & everyday, Cliffs of Fundy celebrates National Indigenous Peoples Day. The Mi'kmaw legends of Glooscap (Kluscap) are as much a part of this place as the tides, the cliffs, the rocks, and the hills. Our symbol is inspired by a traditional Mi'kmaq pattern that reflects water and our home on the Bay. ... See MoreSee Less

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.
