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.
