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

About Us

We hold meetings every 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 also 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.
