The trees in Stanley Park may be hundreds of years old but the parkï¿½s history started long before then. Join us for a walk along the beautiful Stanley Park Seawall to explore the geological history and formation of the area. This interactive field trip will provide teachers with the resources and knowledge to conduct an in-person or virtual Stanley Park GeoTour with their own classes.
Please meet at 9:30 am.
Please wear weather-appropriate clothing and waterproof footwear. Bring a backpack with the lunch, snacks and drinks you will need for the day, along with a bag to carry the kit materials that will be provided. If you have a magnet and/or hand-lens, please bring these along! Parking and travel can be covered by your ProD funds.
Brian is an economic geologist focused on applied research to understand ore deposit systems and develop criteria for mineral exploration. I am interested in the petrochronology of primary and secondary minerals to define the temporal evolution of ore deposit systems. I am also interested in the application of field-based mineralogical and geochemical methods to quantify and characterize the affects of hydrothermal alteration in ore deposits. My current research focuses on mineral economics. In particular, assessing the tellurium production potential of gold tellurides with Dr. Simon Jowitt.
Sarah joined the MineralsEd team as Program Coordinator in July 2020. Originally from Ottawa, Ontario, Sarah has always been passionate about the natural world, leading her to pursue a B.Sc. in Earth Sciences from Laurentian University in Sudbury, Ontario. After moving out west in 2011, she then pursued an M.Sc. in Geology from the University of British Columbia which sparked her love of education. Sarah has explored many roles within the mining and education sectors and is excited to bring her experiences to the MineralsEd team. Sarah is responsible for communication with MineralsEd partners and schools, facilitation of MineralsEd programming and materials, and social media management. In her spare time Sarah enjoys gardening, baking, and spending time with her many pets.
