$6.8 million fossil centre in Nova Scotia

A $6.8 million heritage site at the Joggins Fossil Cliffs opened on May 17.

The Joggins Fossil Centre, overlooking the Bay of Fundy, features the world’s largest collection of 300-million-year-old fossils and is the finest example of terrestrial tropical ecosystems from the Earth’s “Coal Age.”

The Centre’s architecture mimics the natural beauty of the surrounding cliffs with sandstone cladding from a nearby quarry, while the wooden siding evokes the area’s coal mines.
