GORMAN CREEK FORMATION (Valaginian)

Narraway River

Kakwa Prov. Pk.

 The first report of fossil footprints from the Gorman Creek Formation was from the Narraway River in British Columbia which were found in the early 1970's by D.F. Stott and were examined by Philip J. Currie in 1981.  Due to the vertical nature of the tracklayers and their proximity to a high velocity river the only way to observe the tracksite safely was from a helicopter.

Many years later additional tracks and a large-scale tracksite was found in Kakwa Provincial Park in northeastern British Columbia, not far from the original Narraway River site.
