Event Details

Meeting location: Willl be emailed to you before the start of the event.

Walk description: We will examine the exterior and interior of a number of buildings in downtown Vancouver to look at the various natural building stones used in construction and decoration. The provenance, geology and suitability of these materials will be explained. We will note how their use has changed over time according to availability, cost, custom and durability. This will also be an opportunity to learn about the history of the buildings, their architecture, rock quarrying methods and architectural/masonry terminology.

David Cook is a local Biologist and Geologist. He ahs been leading leading walks for several organizations over the last 13 years, The themes of these walks are very varied and lie within the fields in the two areas in which he graduated and worked over a lifetime. 

NOTE: "Earth Walks" are created by community leaders for the False Creek Watershed Society - a non profit group. We are very lucky to have these amazingly knowledgeable people lead us. We would love to have you join us. We ask that you try and register for the walks if there is a good chance you will be able to join us so we know how many are coming. Thanks and hope to see you there! 

Apologies that the newsletter stated these events are free. This year any donations we receive will be offered to the leaders and publicity.
