UNESCO GeoPark Application Good For Midland!

The UNESCO Geopark status is a worthwhile effort and its application to ALL of our beautiful and historic Georgian Bay will bring tourism, research, recreation and educational opportunities to all the communities that rim the bay. I support the exploration and all the collaboration that will come during the consultation phase as we try to get commitments from the many Indigenous (First Nations & Métis) communities and Municipalities involved. It would be great to see a main discovery centre in Midland but I recognize that many other communities will also compete for that honour no matter who started this conversation.

Here are two articles that can help provide some background on this exciting initiative!
