Come join our volunteers from Carleton University's Department of Earth Sciences and the Ottawa-Gatineau Geoheritage Project at area parks, heritage sites and green spaces to learn how geological processes have shaped the landscape and provided resources for our use.
This year, you will find us at some of our most popular sites across the city including Champlain Lookout in Gatineau Park, the Champlain Bridge stromatolites in Gatineau, Cardinal Creek Karst in Orleans, and Pinhey Sand Dunes in Nepean, and Hog’s Back Park in Ottawa. And we will once again open our Sample Preparation Laboratory to visitors who are welcome to bring a rock to cut.
Thanks to this year's partners, the Cardinal Creek Community Association and the Biodiversity Conservancy.
