Stanley Park GeoTour

Description: Join MineralsEd for a walk through beautiful Stanley Park, Vancouver to explore the geological history and formations of the Stanley Park area. During this 3-hour guided tour, participants will look for and examine evidence of rock-forming processes, surface processes, glaciation, and tectonic history of the area in an interactive and easy-to-understand way. This in-person field trip is intended to provide teachers with geoscience context of the Vancouver area, and the resources and know-how to conduct their own in-person or virtual Stanley Park GeoTour with their classes. Teachers will be provided a field trip guide and resource kit.

Participants will be responsible for their own transportation to/from Stanley Park. In order to maintain adequate social distance this field trip is limited to 8 participants  - register early!
