AAA Editor Notes
Miguasha National Park (Parc national de Miguasha), 231 Rte. Miguasha Ouest, 6 km (4 mi.) s. of jct. Hwy. 132, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This fossiliferous site was first discovered in 1842. Since then, many well-preserved fossils have been collected. A preservation park was created in 1985 to protect and enhance the Escuminac Formation—a paleo-ecosystem of the Devonian period dating 380 million years ago. These fossils illustrate a very important event in the course of evolution—the transition from aquatic vertebrates to land vertebrates.

Fossils are exhibited in the main building. The 3.3-kilometre (2.1-mi.) Evolution of Life trail features interpretive panels, picnic areas and views of the estuary.

Note: Digging is strictly forbidden. Pets are not permitted.

Picnicking is permitted. Food is available.
