Rocks

Public

The rock of Mistaken Point hosts thousands of bizarre fossils from the Ediacaran period. Here you can find the earliest multicellular life as well-preserved collections of Precambrian fossils. It is containing probably the oldest metazoan fossils in North America and the most ancient deep-water marine fossils in the world. In 1987, a 5 kilometer stretch of coastline was declared an ecological reserve.
