Stonehammer UNESCO Global Geopark
As North America’s first Global Geopark, Stonehammer Geopark is about geology, but it is also about people, society and culture. Located in Southern New Brunswick on the East Coast of Canada we have a billion years of the Earth's history to share.
Our lives are shaped by the geology; where we settle, the landscape, the crops we grow, natural hazards, water resources, climate, what we mine, and the energy we use are all linked to geology.
With a landscape created by the collision of continents, the closing and opening of oceans, volcanoes, earth quakes, ice ages and climate change, Stonehammer Geopark also includes geological stories from late precambrian time a billion years ago to the most recent Ice Age, and almost everything in between.
