January Field Trip
Jan 12 @ 10:30 am – 11:45 am

 

With the rain still falling we will be doing an inside event for January.   We will be going to the Courtenay and District Museum and Palaeontology Centre which is sure to be a fun time.  There is so much to see here from fossils to history of the Comox Valley and the island.  There are two floors for you to explore and photograph.  I did see several areas where you can also find the collections assignment opportunities.  If you are familiar with Courtenay this is in the old Post Office.

If you would like to car pool please let me know and we can try and help you out.

Lunch will be at the Union Street Grill at noon

477- 5 st  Courtenay (only a few blocks from the museum)
