What is the Amazing Places project?

Adapted from the Amazing Places project by the Fundy Biosphere Reserve in New Brunswick, Georgian Bay, Long Point and Frontenac Arch biosphere reserves have been developing the project in Ontario. This project gives Ontario biosphere reserves the opportunity to educate and inspire visitors about their natural surroundings and to create a connection that can quickly become powerful and deeply personal.

  • To connect people with nature and culture, both residents and visitors;
  • To create a “bucket list” for the biosphere – a network of Amazing Places;
  • To collaborate with local partners to create regional economic impact through a sustainable tourism model
