New Brunswick

Stonehammer Geopark is a 2500km region in Southern New Brunswick with a geologic history going back 1 billion years! Stonehammer strives to make connections between our natural history to the diverse perspectives and experiences of our people. Stories about natural, cultural and intangible heritage are what make our region truly unique.

As North America’s first Global Geopark, Stonehammer Geopark is about geology, but it is also about people, society and culture. 

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, earthquakes, 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.
