Experience local Indigenous culture while developing an appreciation for a wide variety of geomorphological processes and landscapes.
The Stewart/Telegraph Creek field school begins in Terrace where you will gain a foundation in geoscience and anthropology. We will then travel towards Stewart to investigate the geology and observe some of the most spectacular glacial and alpine landscapes on Earth. Our journey will continue to the volcanic area of Mt. Edziza, and the lava deposits along the valley of the Stikine River to Telegraph Creek. While at Telegraph Creek, you will be guided by the Tahltan people on their amazing and breathtaking territory, to learn about the Tahltan culture, history, and salmon fishing villages.
As part of your field studies you will be encouraged to draw upon the information and experiences acquired in both the geomorphology and anthropology courses to develop and articulate more informed opinions on culture, resource exploration and environmental stewardship.
