Joggins Fossil Cliffs on the Bay of Fundy in Nova Scotia is Canada’s 15th UNESCO World Heritage Site. At Joggins you will be able to observe and have accessibility to 15 kilometres of magnificently exposed layers of rock revealing the world’s most complete fossil record of life in the “Coal Age” when lush forests covered Joggins and much of the world’s tropics, 300 million years ago. In these coastal cliffs, rare fossils reveal details of life as it was in the “Coal Age”. Constant erosion from the Fundy tides, rising and falling up to 13 metres (42 feet) in Joggins twice daily, creates possibilities for exposing new fossils. With careful observation, visitors may find fossils on the beach that have fallen from the cliffs, or view the spectacular sandstone layers that entomb ancestors of the first dinosaurs. It is all here, at the Joggins Fossil Cliffs, waiting to be discovered.
Interpretive staff provides guided tours of Joggins Fossil Cliffs. There is a café on site, which serves coffee, tea, cookies, and a few sandwiches. We also have picnic tables outside for when our visitors want to bring their own food. Also, there is a diner up the road that is good for fish/chips, burgers, pizza, etc..
Note – the cut-off or cancellation date if we cannot get the minimum people for this tour is July 20th.
