Explore Geoheritage Day


Sunday, October 18, 2015 
10:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.


Come join us at your local parks and green spaces during National Science and Technology Week for our 7th Annual Geoheritage Day! You will have a chance to learn how geological processes have shaped the regional landscape, given us a glimpse into past environments and life forms and provided resources for our use. Volunteers from Carleton University’s Department of Earth Sciences and the Ottawa Gatineau Geoheritage Project  will be on hand to explain what there is to see and how each site fits into the local geological history. We will have some new things to explore this year, so come out and spend the day with some remarkable rocks, minerals and fossils!

This year we will include the following sites:
