What is the Amazing Places project?

Amazing Places is a mapping project that was originally launched by the Fundy Biosphere Reserve in New Brunswick. 50 Amazing Places were mapped for natural or cultural significance. Each location is equipped with a sign containing a QR code that links to one page of interpretive information on their Amazing Places website, and several of the Amazing Places now have “Planet Earth” style videos that are used by visitor centres, travel researchers, classrooms, and the public.

Thanks to some funding from the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport, the Long Point Biosphere will be replicating the Amazing Places project, in partnership with Norfolk County, in our community.
