10:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.
Come join us at your local parks and green spaces for our 10th annual Geoheritage Day!
Join us to learn more about 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. Come out and spend the day with some remarkable rocks, minerals and fossils!
For September 2018. our sites will include:
- Champlain Bridge Stromatolites, Gatineau
- Hogs Back Park, Ottawa
- Cardinal Creek Karst, Orleans
- Pinhey Sand Dunes, Nepean
- Mer Bleue Bog, Orleans
- Carleton University Earth Sciences Sample Preparation Laboratory – visitors are welcome to bring a rock to cut, and get help to identify it.
