On September 6th, 2014, twenty four P.S. Warren Members hiked 22km and 850m of elevation to visit the world renowned Burgess Shale site. This is a UNESCO World Heritage Site famous for its exceptionally well preserved 505 million year old marine fossils.
We would like to thank the Burgess Shale Geoscience Foundation and our guides for a fun and educational day!
Also, thank you to the sponsors of the field trip: Shell Enhanced Learning Fund (SELF) and the University of Alberta’s Interdepartmental Science Students’ Society (isss.ca)
