Explore Geoheritage Day

Saturday October 9th, 2021
This year Geoheritage Day will be Virtual!

We are excited to launch the Geoheritage Day Website!


Click here to visit the new Geoheritage Day website

Visit exceptional geological sites in your local parks and green spaces, either virtually or on your own this year during the 13th annual Geoheritage Day!

We have added more Geoheritage Sites to the Google Map, lots of information and some Virtual Field Trips to explore. Visit this site to find exceptional geological sites in the National Capital Region and across Canada.

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. This year during the pandemic, geosites in the National Capital Region will be unhosted. But we are hard at work enhancing our digital presence on our new Geoheritage Day website so that you will still be able to visit exceptional geoheritage sites across Canada. 

Come out or stay in and spend the day with some remarkable rocks, minerals and fossils!

Some changes continue due to the pandemic: 

  • Sites will be un-hosted, all information will be virtually, enhanced on our new Geoheritage Day website
  • Guests can visit sites in person; please ensure you follow all local and provincial COVID19 Infection Mitigation protocols
  • We would love to receive pictures from guests who are able to visit the sites. We'll post these pictures on our webpage and social media outlets. Please email pictures to: earth [dot] sciencesatcarleton [dot] ca
