Temporarily Closed

June 30th update: Although BC is entering Phase 3 of it's reopening plan, we have made the decision to remain closed. We will not be hosting summer camps, meetings or drop-in visitors for the summer. We have decided to take this time to focus on research and allow essential staff the space to complete their work. We hope to see everyone soon and we hope you continue to explore safely!

Teachers! While we are closed to the public we are still taking field trip requests. Fill out our booking form.
There will be no penalty for cancelled trips, so fill out the form to secure your spot!
