Fossil Hunting in the Comox Valley

The extensive shale beds along the Comox Valley's Puntledge and Trent Rivers have been the site of a number of major fossil discoveries, most notably the complete fossil remains of an Elasmosaurus from the late Cretaceous period which ended about 65 million years ago.

Although finds of this magnitude are not to be expected for every amateur fossil hunter, even the complete beginner's first trip to the shale beds will almost certainly yield at least some lesser find such as small bivalves.

Guided fossil tours are available during the summer months from the Courtenay Museum and Palaeontology Centre.
