500 Million Years of Fossils: An Introduction to the Remarkable Palaeontology of N.L.
Tuesday, Aug. 15, 7-8 p.m.
Johnson Geo Centre
Dr. Rod Taylor will present the first in a bi-weekly series of palaeology talks, which will continue through October.
The province of Newfoundland and Labrador has a complex geological history, resulting in a rich and diverse variety of body and trace fossils. Preserved traces of ancient life can be found in many places in the province, ranging from 100 million years old to more than half a billion years in age. Many of these early organisms lived on prehistoric seafloors, while others grew on land or even flew through the air. This talk will serve as a brief introduction to the many palaeontological wonders Newfoundland and Labrador has to offer, setting the stage for a series of palaeontology-themed talks to take place at the Johnson Geo Centre in the coming weeks.
Admission is free. All are welcome.
