Geosites of Lesvos
The Natural History Museum of the Lesvos Petrified Forest is launching a new initiative this summer as part of its campaign to inform locals and visitors about the recognition of Lesvos as an UNESCO Global Geopark. Utilizing the internet and social networks, it launches the digital presentation of the Geosites of Lesvos that are well-known, but also unknown to the majority, elements of the landscape of the island. The Geosites document events and processes that shaped the island’s history and evolution.
Geosites are protected elements of the landscape according to environmental legislation because they are the main witnesses of the history of the earth.
