The Geopark project in Niagara

Geotourism is a niche-market that has grown over the past 20-plus years. It is a form of nature-based tourism that showcases an area’s geographical character, its “earth history” which includes geology and landscape, flora and fauna, and their interaction with humans to form a cultural identity.

It is a niche that focuses on education, conservation, and sustainability. It is through the growing phenomenon of geotourism that the relatively new concept of the “geopark” – and the official designation of the UNESCO Global Geopark – has emerged.

Niagara is ideally situated and qualified to become one of a select few worldwide Global Geoparks, encompassing the entire Niagara Region.

Please join us in supporting this non-partisan, regionally-unifying project as we work towards UNESCO accreditation.
