Fossils

The bluff overlooking the White Rapids at Fredericton Junction is filled with many fossils.

Fossils may be found all along the river bank. One can find the trunks of very large palm type plants in the river at summer low water. Up past the railway bridge on the left is a shale bank loaded with fern fossils.

The fossils in the white rapids adventure trail are 200 to 300 million years old. Please, please leave the fossils in place for others to study and enjoy.

Take lots of pictures and compare what you have found with examples found on the internet.
