What Rocks Can Tell Us

*Session is free but registrations is required*

Jeff Smith brings his enthusiasm and love of geology to this guided walk of the Harbourville beach and the shores of the Bay of Fundy. 

Jeff’s presentation will begin with an introduction to the “makeup” of our Earth and the processes that have created the Maritime Provinces and the Bay of Fundy. This will be followed by an identification of different rock types and how they came to be here. 

An important highlight will be an examination of the outcrop, which Jeff describes as “a key aspect of the Bay of Fundy’s geological setting: evidence for the opening of the Atlantic Ocean.”

 


About Jeff Smith:

Jeff has worked as a geologist for over 40 years, with assignments that have taken him to Alberta, northern Ontario and Nova Scotia. He is fascinated by the Bay of Fundy which he describes as a “unique geological regime.”
