If you want to enjoy a great outdoor learning experience, walk on the ocean floor at low tide, eat delicious sea food, sleep in a charming country motel and not have to dress up for dinner this is the best!

If you have any interest at all in fossils, this program is an absolute necessity to help you understand ancient life.

This was a fantastic A+ program. The small group is great in that it helped me to get to know and learn from the others. There is nothing like seeing the Fundy tide come in and expose some more fossils. The Sunshine Inn was a great place to stay and the breakfasts were out of this world. In general our leader Pat could not have done a better job. The one thing that would improve the trip is to add another day as there was lots more we could have seen and done.
