Guaranteed sightings! Starting on the outskirts of Saint John, travelling along the scenic Kennebecasis Valley and, via ferry, to the Kingston Peninsula, the complex geological history of southern New Brunswick comes to life.  The main rock types we learned about in elementary school (can you remember them? Igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic…) are all represented. Visiting about five sites, we will see and even stand on an ancient carbon capture project, a fast-flowing river system at the base of an ancient mountain range and a solidified pile of volcanic ash. As well, we will see evidence of the “recent” Ice Age. Learn how the age of rocks is determined and maybe get to hold a tiny piece of the oldest rock yet found on our planet.
Kids welcome!
