Fantastic Fossils at the Oldest Reef on Earth on Isle La Motte, VT
Fantastic Fossils at the oldest reef on earth on Isle la Motte, Vermont. 480,000,000 million years ago, when this reef teemed with life, it contained primitive creatures, ancestors of today’s snails, octopuses, and sea sponges.
The reef and the dead creatures within it became fossilized black limestone, which was quarried in the 1880s and used to build Radio City Music Hall and the National Museum of Art. Due to it’s geological value, it’s now preserved at the Fisk Quarry Preserve, which is on Isle La Motte in the Champlain Islands in northwestern Vermont. It’s a great place to walk around and explore.
