Ohnia:kara Aspiring Global Geopark is home to a multitude of natural wonders to be explored and discovered.

Ohnia:kara is the Mohawk word for “neck between two bodies of water” and is the origin of the name the world recognizes as Niagara. It has been the home from time immemorial to many Indigenous Nations and continues to this day to be an iconic gathering place visited by people from nations around the world.

Geographically situated between two Great Lakes, the Niagara Escarpment is a result of 500 million years of natural processes, and is designated as a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve.
