Joggins Fossil Cliffs and Camping Trip

An invitation from

CFI HFX

Join the Centre for Inquiry Halifax as we take a two-hour guided tour of the Joggins Fossil Cliffs, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, followed by an overnight group camp at the Five Islands Provincial Park campground.

It was recently featured in the new Cosmos series, and has been mentioned in Origin of Species and the Great Oxford Debate.
