AAA Editor Notes
Joggins Fossil Cliffs is at 100 Main St. The fossils embedded in the 15 kilometres (9 mi.) of coastal cliffs along the Bay of Fundy contain an important record of life during the Coal Age 300 million years ago. A sizable collection of carboniferous fossils found at this UNESCO World Heritage Site includes plants and rare insects as well as reptile and amphibian footprints, including species found nowhere else. The Joggins Fossil Centre, on the site of an old coal mine overlooking the cliffs, is the repository for these specimens. Tours include the Wanderer's Experience with a 30-minute guided tour of the sea cliffs over easy terrain, the 2-hour Explorer's Experience over moderate terrain and the 4-hour Adventurer's Experience over difficult terrain.
