Welcome to the Vancouver Paleontological Society

We are a non-profit society that is open to anyone with an interest in fossils.

What do we do?

  • We hold meetings every other month featuring talks on different aspects of paleontology. Members bring in fossils for discussion, identification, and share field trip information.
  • We organize fossil field trips from March to October. These range from local day trips to weekend trips.
  • We maintain a growing fossil collection for display and educational purposes and offer one-day workshops at local community centres.

How do I join?

Membership is open to anyone with an interest in fossils. Our meetings are free and open to the public. Current annual dues are Can$30 for individuals and families. A membership entitles you and your family to receive the BCPA Newsletter and to attend all VanPS field trips.

When and where are the meetings?

  • Date:  3rd Wednesday of odd months (unless otherwise mentioned) - see our Calendar page
  • Time:   7:00 pm
  • Where:   Kitsilano Library - 2425 MacDonald Street, Vancouver
