Fossils, Minerals, Tides and Culture: Nova Scotia's Bay of Fundy

Join us for an exceptional geological adventure and follow the shore of the Minas Basin to Parrsboro, where the world's highest tides have produced sandstone formations, deep ravines and caves, and beaches that are a rock hunter's paradise. Learn about the natural history of Nova Scotia, with the oldest rocks in the world, and see how the ice age formed Peggy's Cove 20,000 years ago. Explore local history and pay tribute to the rich heritage of the Mi'kmaq, Acadians and Loyalists. Witness the power of the Fundy tides, walk the ocean floor, learn about the first animals on land, and see where the land masses came together to form Nova Scotia.
