SAINT JOHN – When thinking about heritage buildings we generally think of when they were built and by whom –  their social significance etc – all too often we forget about the geoscientific heritage of our buildings.   On  Tuesday June 1st, the New Brunswick Museum invites you to engage with  the geology of the  heritage buildings of Saint John.

The Uptown Geo Walk will tour the various buildings  featured in the guide Rebuilt in Stone: Geology and the Stone Buildings of Saint John, New Brunswick with its authors, Dr. Randall Miller and Gary Hughes of the New Brunswick Museum.  After the tour there will be a reception at the Happinez Wine Bar where you can discuss the tour with the authors, over wine and appetizers, and  take home your own copy of Rebuilt in Stone.
