Stone Hammer Geo Park
From towering rock formations and sea caves along the
Bay of Fundy to the Reversing Falls and fossil-laden cliffs,
the southern coast of New Brunswick reveals a billion year geological story. And nobody tells that story better than our very own Dr. Randy Miller, P.Geo., who spearheaded the effort to have Stonehammer named North America’s first Global Geopark.
Dr. Miller is also an adjunct professor in the Department of Geology at the
University of New Brunswick and the recipient of the 2010 Distinguished
Scientist Award ‘Gesner Medal’ from the Atlantic Geoscience Society.
His tireless work in exploring, documenting and promoting Stonehammer
Geopark’s significance was an influencing factor in it being named North
America’s first Global Geopark in October 2010.
Dr. Miller’s presentation will discuss:
• What it takes to become part of the Global Geoparks Network
• The vibrant geological history of southern New Brunswick
• The unique features of Stone
