June 2017 field trip – no monthly meeting

The lack of a speaker forces the cancellation of this month’s meeting that had been planned for this week. Apologies.

There will be a field trip this month. Please see details in the email sent to all society members by Tom Cockburn.

Date: Sunday, June 25

Meeting Location and Time:  Helmcken Road Park and Ride, 08:00 AM to sign-in and arrange car-pooling. Please do offer your driver gas money. If you have not yet filled in a BCPA waiver this year you will need to do so before joining the field trip.

Safety and Equipment: 

  • Safety: We will be visiting an intertidal site, so you should expect to be walking on rocks that can be slippery and treacherous. Expect to be around water.
  • Equipment: Fossils may be found in exposed rock and in concretions, so a good hammer or sledge, chisel, and protective eyewear are required.

The weather forecasts call for sun, but this is the west coast so you should prepare for anything from blazing sun to torrential downpours.
