Detailed Information:
FCG interest extends to stone in heritage buildings, and distinctive features in road cuts, quarries and abandoned mines, as well as the cultural history of such sites. You are a potential FCG member if you endorse the aims of the Canadian Geoheritage Committee (CGC), a non-profit group formed in 2003 to appeal to all levels of government to recognize, designate and preserve geoheritage sites. You need not be Canadian to become a "Friend".

The Objectives of the Canadian Geoheritage Committee are to
*preserve irreplaceable geological and geomorphological features
*strengthen laws to preserve significant records of natural history
*increase public awareness through lectures, interpretive signs and publications/brochures

Members of the Canadian Geoheritage Committee are working with governmental agencies, primary and secondary schools, museums, universities, societies and public interest groups to help preserve, protect and promote Canadian geoheritage. By becoming a member of Friends of Canadian Geoheritage you will help to provide direct evidence of support for actions now being requested of all levels of government.
