Rock folds of Point Pleasant Park (by Jessica Winder)

Point Pleasant Park records nearly half a billion years of the Earth’s history!  Folds and layers in the rocks tell us how Nova Scotia formed over millions of years. From modern beaches, to continents colliding, to glaciers polishing and scratching the bedrock, we’ll explore the fascinating geology of Point Pleasant Park with Dr. Lexie Arnott of the Atlantic Geoscience Society.
