Fate of potential Tumbler Ridge geopark to be known next week


The Geopark Society is led by President Charles Helm, and along with him is a delegation consisting of Linda Helm, Sue Kenny, Jim and Helen Kincaid, April Moi, Larry White, and Mayor Darwin Wren.

The past summer was a great one for exploration and discovery according to members of the Geopark Society. Among the discoveries were new bird trackways, dinosaur trackways which are likely the oldest in the proposed geopark, giant clam fossils, and a marine reptile.

A number of projects are also being worked on including hiking trail improvements, and the Tumbler Ridge trail has also been completed. It’s a 27 kilometre trail that surrounds three quarters of the community and leads to geological sites of interest.
