KAKWA PROVINCIAL PARK SITE

    A new tracksite from the Gorman Creek Formation is located within the boundaries of Kakwa Provincial Park in northeastern British Columbia. The site is significant due to the destruction of the previous site at the Narraway River and is currently the best site available for studying Valaginian-age vertebrate tracks in western Canada. A preliminary scientific assessment of the Kakwa Provincial Park site was conducted in the summer of 2005 in cooperation with B.C. Parks. Plans are currently underway to conduct large-scale research in the summer of 2006.
