A place for shared knowledge

In July 2017, Shorefast and the Geology at the Edge program were proud to open the Fogo Island Geology Centre in the community of Shoal Bay. Generously funded by Husky Energy, the Centre is located in the former St. Simon’s Church in Shoal Bay. After the extensive restoration of this storied building, it now houses a permanent collection of geological specimens, maps, and interactive learning materials, and serves as a venue for exciting geology programming including youth workshops, lectures, and special events.
