The Precambrian-Cambrian Boundary- The evolution of burrowing

Western Newfoundland Conference Field Trip

Western Newfoundland Conference Field Trip



Because of the shortage of accommodation in rural Newfoundland, the numbers of attendees on each trip is by necessity small.

 

In order to enable as many people as possible to attend we are repeating the trips.

The repeated trips will cover the same localities, though the schedules may be slightly different.
