August 19 @ 7:30 am - 5:00 pm

SFU geologist John Clague returns for another exciting one-day tour of British Columbia’s dynamic, evolving landscape. This year’s trip will showcase the geology of the spectacular Howe Sound-Whistler corridor, as well as hazards related to maintaining roads and railways through the Coast Mountains. Topics include the geology of Metro Vancouver, rockfalls and debris flows along the Sea-to-Sky Highway, Britannia Mine, the geology of Howe Sound, the origin of Stawamus Chief, the eruptive history of Mt. Garibaldi volcano, and “fire-and-ice” landforms south of Whistler.
