All fossil finds are property of the Crown. However one local paleontologist through an agreement with the Federal Government has contributed a most significant collection to the Cranbrook History Centre. On Wednesday evening Guy Santucci, Museum Board Director and coordinator for much of the collaborative work around this donation, announced that Michel Plourde was the generous benefactor. The collection is considered to be so significant that The Cranbrook History Centre has received funding to set up a fossil lab with a coordinator. Many of these fossil finds make their way to The Royal Ontario Museum but it was Mr. Plourde's specific wish that this collection remain in the area from which the fossils originated.
Thank You Michel Plourde!
