Stonehammer UNESCO Global Geopark

Stonehammer UNESCO Global Geopark

Stonehammer UNESCO Global Geopark is a 2500km region in Southern New Brunswick with an almost continuous geologic history going back 1 billion years! Our geosites tell stories of the closing of one ocean and the opening of another, the emergence of life on Earth and how it has evolved since then. You can explore the geopark (check out our google map!) on your own or get in touch to book personal guided visits!


First designated as a Geopark in 2010, Stonehammer strives to make connections between natural history and the diverse perspectives and experiences of the people that live here. Stories about natural, cultural and intangible heritage are what make our region truly unique. We work with organizations that champion sustainable development and tourism, recognizing the intrinsic link between the land and our communities.
