The fossils which were found at the Joggings Fossil Cliffs are characterized by their great diversity - in total more than 200 different species were found. It is worth mentioning that most of the fossils were found inside of trees. Two years ago Joggings Fossil Cliffs were declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The Visitor Center is brand new and won several prizes for its green design.

The fossil cliffs
The cliff is quickly eroding - one meter a year at certain places - and constantly new fossils appear.
The Visitor Center
After our visit to the fossil cliffs, we drove to Fort Beausejour, a National Historic Site of Canada. The fort was build in 1751 by the French to defend themselves against the British. It fell just a few years later in 1756.
Overnight we stayed in Saint John, which is know for its Reversing Falls. At high tide the water flow coming from the sea is so strong that the falls reverse.
