Fourteen year old Noah Richardson from Calgary and 12 year old Kai Battaile from Vermont may be young, but their shared passion goes back into prehistory.

They are the first junior guides of the Burgess Shale Geoscience Foundation.
Noah and Kai's worlds and passions collided a few years ago in the town of Field, when they met while exploring the Burgess Shale.

On Wednesday they're making a presentation in Cranbrook.

Noah speaks in person; Kai speaks via video.
