The Stonehammer Story- explore a billion years of Earth history!

 

Welcome to Stonehammer UNESCO Global Geopark!


We love Sparking Curiosity about the Earth!


With a landscape created by the collision of continents, the closing and opening of oceans, volcanoes, earthquakes, ice ages and climate change, Stonehammer UNESCO Global Geopark includes geological stories from the late precambrian time a billion years ago to the most recent Ice Age, and almost everything in between.


As North America’s first geopark, Stonehammer is about geology, but it is also about the people, society and culture. You can hike, kayak, rock climb, zip, eat and tour… you’ll have fun every step of the way!

What is a Geopark?

 

A Geopark is an area recognized by UNESCO to have exceptional geological heritage. This simply means that the area has a natural landscape that is good for education, has a significant scientific value, is particularly rare or it is simply beautiful to look at.


Geoparks aren’t just about geology though, they also take in locations with interesting archaeology, wildlife and habitats, history, folklore and culture, all of which are intricately linked with the underlying geology.
