Yandangshan Geopark is designated as the educational base of land and resources

Recently, the Ministry of Land and Resources designated Yandangshan Geopark as the educational base of land and resources of the second batch in China so that the Geopark gained another national designation.
Yandangshan succeeded in application for the national geopark designation and the global geopark designation in 2004 and 2005 respectively. In recent years, the Geopark has made great efforts in the environmental protection and maintenance and in the knowledge dissemination pursuant to the Standards for Educational Base of Land and Resources and the Temporary Measures for Recommendation and Designation of Educational Base of Land and Resource. The specialists, who were present in the recent jury conferences in Beijing, spoke highly of the Geopark. At last, the Geopark was smoothly designated as the educational base of land and resources of the second batch in China.
The Geopark will take use of such tourism resources as global geopark and national educational base of land and resources to develop its educational tourism actively so as to acquaint more people with Yandangshan and experience its special charm of geotourism.
An educational base of land and resources is a sci-tech room/hall, a scientific experiment base, a resources conservation area or other places where an educational activity of national conditions and science & technology in the fields of land and resources (such as land resources, mineral resources, marine resources, foundation geology, geological environment, geological disasters and surveying & mapping technologies) is held independently.
