TUMBLER RIDGE: Seeks UNESCO Geopark designation

Home to one of the largest exhibits of dinosaur footprints in Canada, Northern BC’s Tumbler Ridge may soon make an impression on a global scale. This March, the Tumbler Ridge Museum Foundation and community of Tumbler Ridge proposed that a Tumbler Ridge Geopark become a new member to the UNESCO global family. It would include the renowned Peace Region Palaeontology Research Centre, and its museum exhibits in the Dinosaur Discovery Gallery and the Community Centre. The proposed park would be 7,822 sq. km. in size. A decision on the bid will be made in 2014, and if successful, the geopark would join 90 such UNESCO parks worldwide.
