Interpretive displays at the Yoho National Park Visitor Centre reveal the mysteries of the Burgess Shale and its creatures such as Canadaspis, a shrimp relative, or slug-like Wiwaxia. A digital touch table brings these ancient creatures to life and allows you to select and learn about Burgess Shale animals by tapping on the screen. Then examine a giant slab of rock and feel the imbedded fossil within it, or read a page from Charles Walcott’s field notebook about his exciting fossil finds.
