Discover Canada’s oldest dinosaurs in Parrsboro, Nova Scotia!
In the Bay of Fundy the world’s highest tides erode the majestic sea cliffs to reveal half a billion years of geological history. The Fundy coasts contain internationally significant fossils, from Jurassic reptiles and dinosaurs to 300-million-year-old footprints of ancient amphibians. The Parrsboro area is also famous for its gems and minerals, including amethyst and agate gemstones.
