YOUR TOUR GUIDE:

Brian Hebert, a Tourism Certified Professional, grew up in the "suburbs" of Joggins and has had an eye for fossils since he was a young boy.  He could be found on the beach every day searching the cliffs for new discoveries.  He impressed the geologists he met along the cliffs and continues to work with them on research projects to this day.

 Brian not only holds the highest level of recognition as a Heritage Interpreter  after achieving his National Certification provided by Nova Scotia's Tourism Professionals, he was also honoured to be asked to give a personal tour to the UNESCO Scientific Advisory Committee which led to Joggins being selected as one of the few fossil localities on the UN's World Heritage Site List.  

The following is an example of some of the research Brian has done in the past:

In the summer of 2016 a film crew from Paris, France included our tour in a documentary titled Faux Pas Rever: Acadie.

Brian has also been featured on a CBC Land and Sea episode about the Joggins Fossil Cliffs which you can view by clicking the link below:
