We took a trip to Arisaig Provincial Park in Nova Scotia, a 20 minute drive from home.It's an interesting place with a maritime flair.
The rocks and fossils of Arisaig cliffs have been studied by geologists from around the world for over 150 years, and represent 40 million years of earth's history.
Brachiopods are the most common fossils at Arisaig, and were readily found by small fossil hunters.
It is not permitted to remove or disturb the fossils embedded in the cliffs, however the loose fossils on the beach may be collected at this time. We had a very successful fossil hunt:).
