A project to systematically collect and document small vertebrate fossils eroding from the earliest Jurassic sandstone units at Wasson Bluff began in 2015. In the summers of 2016 and 2017, the Fundy Geological Museum hosted public excavations to assist in the surface collecting and screening of near surface exposures of a section of fluvial sandstone units.
The fossil site was chosen for public assisted excavation because it was productive and actively eroding near the high tide shoreline, was considered relatively safe from overhead cliff erosion, and was easily accessible for public visitors.
Did you dig?
Let me know if you participated in the public excavations or attended any of the museum tours. This research is now being written up for publication.
