Welcome To Stonehammer
Centered on the port city of Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada, Stonehammer became the first North American member of the Global Geoparks Network in 2010. We tell "a billion years of stories" about planet Earth, connecting stories of geology with stories of community.
What Is A Geopark?
A Geopark is an area recognized by UNESCO to have exceptional geological heritage. The area has a natural landscape that is good for education, has an international scientific value, is particularly rare or it is simply beautiful to look at.
Your Adventure Awaits!
Stonehammer experience providers have been extensively trained and provide fun ways to explore the geopark. Whether you like to be adventurous, active, enjoy a delicious meal, or meet explorers of the past — there's something for everyone in the geopark.
Stonehammer friends are people just like you who have an interest in our communities and our Earth. Some want to ensure earth science is taught in a fun and engaging manner while others want to ensure our youth understand the importance of the earth beneath our feet.
