We are so excited to have joined our friends in World Heritage and Biosphere Reserves at #CCUNESCO2017 representing Geoparks in Canada and talking about #climatechange and #reconciliation. Here are a few images from Montreal!
#TRgeo Direct Operator Filaprint has completed a #3D printed land model of the Tumbler Ridge UNESCO Global Geopark! Not only can you see a map of the Geopark, you can now feel the shape of the geosites. Stop by the Tumbler Ridge Visitor Information Centre..
This unnamed mountain beside Mount Becker shows a syncline (trough) in limestone of the Palliser Formation, about 370 million years old.
“Two local children correctly identified a dinosaur trackway just below Tumbler Ridge on the banks of Flatbed Creek in 2000. This was the catalyst for an explosion of discoveries in the area that is now the Geopark.” http://www.hellobc.com/tumbler-ridge/things-to-do/outdoor-activities/hiking.aspx
***Correction*** The Tree Planting Ceremony is on Friday June 2 at 11:00am Next week we will be celebrating Tourism Week here in the Tumbler Ridge Global Geopark. Stay tuned for more events, tourism statistics, and why Tourism is so important! #TRGEO..
