Don Reid is known as the 'Keeper of the Cliffs'. He's been passionate about fossils for a very long time, and knows the Joggins cliffs like the back of his hand. Eldon George was also very passionate about fossils at a very young age. Owner of the Parrsboro Rock and Mineral Shop and Museum, he's also made some incredible finds throughout the years, such as the world's smallest dinosaur tracks.
My sincere congratulations to two incredible individuals who have made amazing discoveries and contributions, inspiring many people along their paths to pursue similar dreams.
I tip my hat to them.
