painting: Ice Age Paleoenvironment, Artist’s depiction of the Ice Age world at the Irving Nature Park, Saint John, New Brunswick, 1995. Near the end of the last ice age, about 14,000-13,000 years ago, glaciers stood at the Irving Nature Park in Saint John. Geologists describe it as a tidewater glacier where the ice front met the Bay of Fundy. The fossil record around this time includes the remains of brittlestars, clams and walrus.
