Falls part of Niagara’s UNESCO Geopark effort
From Niagara This Week:
The push to have Niagara declared a UNESCO Geopark has come to Niagara Falls.
In May, Patrick McKeever, a geologist and professor by trade who eventually helped create the UNESCO Global Geoparks label, made a case to Niagara Regional council the global designation would promote tourism and bring international recognition to Niagara’s cultural and geological assets.
On Tuesday, members of a steering committee called Ohnia:kara Aspiring Global Geopark, made a similar presentation to Niagara Falls city council.
