Walcott Quarry

The students were highly impressed with the leader's skills, and knowledge brought to each of the hikes, one of the highlights. Cost of the trip was well worth it based on his expertise.

I received many comments from my group of Dutch tourists all raving about the quality of the presentations and exhibits. Well done, keep up the good work, I'll be back for more.

Walcott Quarry

Scenery and interpretation were excellent, we felt well educated, knew what to expect at each leg and felt well cared for.
... informative geological info, experience and knowledge made the BS extra special, we had the opportunity to learn, and this education separates it from other hikes.

Mount Stephen Fossil Beds

Thank you for the advice I received on which hike to book, Mt. Stephen was definitely the right choice for my group!
Thanks to R & K for sharing their passion and the BSGF for finding such dedicated staffers.  The hike was both the impetus for and the highlight of our road trip.

Geo-Walk

We only found out about the GeoWalk by chance from a store in Lake Louise (we were asking about things to do with kids who are interested in geology.) We’ll tell all our friends for sure.

The guide was amazing. I think that the main difference between a just decent hike and the one we did was the huge amount of information that Rob shared with us.
Please keep on that path, it was really interesting and pedagogical.
... I think the hike was almost perfect.

Being in Field, so near the holy ground of Walcott's Quarry, filled me with great awe and joy. I had to forego the hike to the quarry, but you gave me back something much more valuable: your expert introduction and the chance to actually hold some of the fossils I had read so much about. Like holding the Holy Grail or shaking Marilyn Monroe's hand.....
We enjoyed every minute of our visit and to me it was the highlight of my trip to Canada.

Walcott Quarry

I had very high expectations on this hike and I have to say that all of them were more than fulfilled...
Our guide was really outstanding, good knowledge of the geology of the region and of the fossils and the history, he gave us lots of very useful explanations, it was a pleasure to have him with us.

Walcott Quarry

I'd like to give a big "thanks" to Hugh, who took us up to the Walcott quarry last Friday July 11. I was expecting the guide to give us only the basic outline of the geology and paleontology (while ensuring that no-one fell off the mountain), but Hugh did so much more. The discussions en route were comparable to those in a post-grad seminar, and highly enjoyable. Great use of visual aids, well organized, and fun. And he did all that while carrying a heavier pack than any of us.
