Description: 

Canada’s Gros Morne park, on the comparatively sheltered Western coast of Newfoundland, is a geology lover’s paradise and a designated UNESCO natural world heritage site. From precipitous land-locked fjords to the curiously sterile exposed mantle of the Tablelands formation, this is a wild landscape and one that is home to a unique mixture of boreal, temperate and arctic flora and fauna. Join vEcotourism’s project manager, Jay Ploss, as he takes you on an narrated tour of geological discovery at Green Point, a stretch of wave-battered coast, where you’ll interpret the exposed rock to reveal the continent-shattering secrets of Earth’s distant past.
