Geoheritage Day 2019

Saturday, September 28th, 2019
10:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.

Come join us at your local parks and green spaces for our 11th annual Geoheritage Day!

**A School bus will be available to take visitors from Carleton University campus, from Parking Garage P18 to the Pinhey Sand Dunes at 10am, and will return at approximately 12:30pm (courtesy of the Biodiversity Conservancy)

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!
