Tumbler Ridge designated a UNESCO Geopark

The District of Tumbler Ridge has become North America’s second UNESCO Geopark.

The designation was granted on September 23, 2014, at the Sixth International UNESCO Conference on Global Geoparks in Saint John, NB.

A geopark is a unified area with geological heritage of international significance. The 8,000 square-kilometre Tumbler Ridge Geopark will showcase dinosaur tracks, mountain trails, canyon waterfalls and wetlands. It becomes one of about 100 UNESCO Geoparks worldwide.

Congratulations to Charles Helm and his team on this outstanding achievement.
