This NEW, Geotour guide for Terrace, BC, puts a rich source of local earth-science information in the hands of teachers, prospectors, students, visitors and interested residents. The 15 stops described in this lively guidebook take the reader through the bedrock and glacial history of the Terrace area, natural hazards, recent events in geological history such as the 250 year old Nass basalt eruption and the joys of the deeply-sourced Lakelse hotsprings. It also shows how the community depends on earth resources like sand and gravel and sources of clean water; and how the earth accommodates waste materials.
Terrace's interesting mining history is highlighted by a stop at Heritage Park. Colour illustrations and clear directions aid in communicating this fascinating earth story.
All publications of the BC Geological Survey are available digitally, free of charge, from this website.
