Geopark Ambassador Course
The first course run by the geopark project is the Geopark Ambassador Course. It has already run three times for the business network and local communities and is also part of the curriculum for the Regional Tour Guiding Course run by Petersburg OETC.
This short course comprises 2 x1.5 hour sessions and will be accompanied by a field trip when COVID-19 restrictions allow. It enables participants to become Geopark Ambassadors by learning about the geopark project, why the local geology is so important, what can be found at the sites of interest, how to read the geological map (and make links to the geology and sites of interest) and the landscape, and how you (the participants) can use the geopark brand.
We are excited to have our first Geopark Ambassadors!
