Amazing Places are opportunities to educate and inspire visitors about their natural surroundings, and to create a connection that can quickly become powerful and deeply personal. They tell a story about stunning natural spaces in publicly accessible locations.
Amazing Places History
The concept of naming Amazing Places began in 2010 with the Fundy Biosphere Reserve. The Amazing Places project is now thriving in five Canadian UNESCO biosphere reserves in New Brunswick, Ontario, and British Columbia. The project goal is to identify and promote significant natural sites for residents and visitors to explore in order to encourage better knowledge of ecological features and inspire a commitment to conservation.
A cross-Canada Amazing Places program, with its focus on the unique, beautiful, natural sites of this country, has the potential to unite all Canadians. This country has an abundance of natural beauty, but we sometimes forget to celebrate it, and with a concerted effort from participating biosphere reserves in Canada, we are renewing that public interest and appreciation for these beautiful places.
What Are Amazing Places?
Amazing Places are opportunities to educate and inspire visitors about their natural surroundings, and to create a connection that can quickly become powerful and deeply personal. Amazing Places tell a story about biological, cultural or historical features in publicly accessible locations. Following the do no harm model, Amazing Places are chosen in locations that can handle increased visitation without compromising what makes the place Amazing.
