Blanche Brook Fossil Site


This is the oldest know fossil bed of mountain trees that produced seeds, dating from 305 million years ago when what is now Newfoundland was part of a much larger continental mass and was much further south than today, so the trees grew in a tropical climate and towered to over 160 feet. The area is protected under the provincial Historic Resources Act.
