The Roving Scientist Program is a geoscience outreach program that began in 2013 as a partnership between Mount Royal University and the Canmore Museum & Geoscience Centre. Through the Roving Scientist Program, University Students, Professional Geoscientists and Canmore Museum volunteers have spent weekend afternoons over the last five summers hiking up to their station at Grassi Lakes where they provide free interpretation to visitors about the geology, history, and ecology of the area. In the summer of 2018, watch for the Roving Scientist volunteers at Grassi Lakes and at new sites at Cougar Creek and Ha Ling Trailhead.
We are always looking for new volunteers to help with the program - please contact Program Director Sami Wackerle firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested in learning more.
The Roving Scientist Program is generously supported by the Canadian Society of Petroleum Geologists
