EDUCATION

The best way to learn about the unique sites of the Geopark is to see and experience them first-hand. The geological, natural and cultural sites of the area showcase the development of the region from 1900 million years ago to the present day.

WELCOME TO THE GEOPARK

We encourage the day-care centres, schools and other institutions located in the Geopark area to visit the Geopark and its destinations. We also welcome other learning-enthusiasts from Finland as well as from abroad. Knowledge of the area increases the willingness to foster it and preserve its special features also for the generations to come.
