GEOLOGY TOUCHES US ALL
Alongside climate, our geology determines what we grow and eat, how we get around, and how we sustain our economies. Here in Temiskaming, some exceptional features of our bedrock geology helped us become a rich mining powerhouse, and the unique way in which our rift valley controlled glacial and post-glacial erosion and deposition laid the groundwork for a prosperous agricultural sector. Today, our dramatic location on the shores of Lake Temiskaming lets us offer exceptional experiences for both locals and tourists. The rock beneath our feet is the very foundation of what we have become, and is what we celebrate at the Temiskaming Rift Valley Aspiring Geopark.
