Our team at McMaster University is currently developing a series of GeoTrails, Urban GeoTrails, and GeoRoutes in the Hamilton/Niagara region. They are in the process of researching a GeoRoute that visits a collection of wineries in the Niagara Peninsula, to discuss how local geology affects vineyard growth and ultimately, the taste of the wine.
We have partnered with the NPAGG to further develop publicly accessible information about the geological history of the Niagara Peninsula, in particular the Geosites that NPAGG has identified in the Niagara region.
Team Leaders: Heidi Daxberger, Andreia Hamid
We have already released two Urban GeoTrails in Toronto – one on the University of Toronto campus and the other spanning between Union Station and the Royal Ontario Museum. We are continuing to develop more Urban GeoTrails in Toronto, to highlight the geological significance of areas around the city.
Team Leaders: Beth McLarty-Halfkenny, George Dix, Quentin Gall, Geoff Pignotta
Our team at Carleton University is presently developing a series of three GeoTrails and one Urban GeoTrail to be released by Fall 2023. Geotrail development is focusing largely on the Rideau Trail.
Team Leaders: Daniel Layton-Matthews
Our Queen’s team is developing GeoTrails and Urban GeoTrails in the Kingston area. We anticipate our first release this summer!
We are happy to partner with Mining Matters throughout the year to attend a series of public events. You can find us at Science Rendezvous Kingston in May, the Rockhound Gemboree in Bancroft in August, the OLMC Gem & Mineral Show in Ottawa in September, and the London Gem & Mineral Show in London in November. We invite you to come visit us at our booth at any (or all) of our annual events to participate in educational activities and talk about geology!
