A visit to an operating mine is a great first hand learning expereince for teachers who teach about BC's natural resources. Meet the people, see the process, learn about the economics and recognize the role of the operation to the nearby communities.

As we increasingly become city dwellers, our familiarty with the land and its natural resources becomes more vague. A visit around Vancouver Harbour lets us see and appreciate the significance of Canada's natural resources to jobs, the economy, and global trade. This is a great opportunity for teachers at all grade levels.
