    WELCOME TO THE ASPIRING JERSEY ISLAND GEOPARK.
    This is an exciting project for Jersey Heritage and partners. Geoparks are outstanding places around the world that celebrate the links between people and the Earth.


    A Geopark tells the whole story of an area, right from the very beginning. We think that Jersey – which has been shaped by tide and time – should have this designation because of the Island’s exceptional geology, unique heritage, amazing landscapes and special seascapes. Discover more about this new project below.

    GEOSITES

    Geosites are places around the Island with special significance.
