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.
