Geology of Lynn Canyon Park
Join geologist Dr. John Clague for a tour of Lynn Canyon Park. This field trip focuses on the geologic origin of Lynn Canyon, Ice Age glaciation, and 30,000 to 50,000-year-old vegetation of Metro Vancouver.
Meet at 9:00 am at the Lynn Valley Ecology Centre. Please note that parking may be a problem so get there early and wait for someone to leave or use transit. From Phibbs Exchange take bus #227 to Lynn Canyon Park’s main entrance. From Downtown Vancouver take the sea bus across to the Lonsdale Quay bus loop and take either bus #228, or #229. Then transfer to Bus #227 to be taken directly to Lynn Canyon Park’s main entrance.
John Clague is an Emeritus Professor in the Department of Earth Sciences at Simon Fraser University. His main professional research interests are the glacial history of British Columbia and natural hazards.
Because of a need to limit the size of the group to 15, pre-registration is required. Please contact David Cook to register.
