What do I need to bring on a trackway tour??

Our trackway tours are an exciting way to connect with the history of the Tumbler Ridge UNESCO Global Geopark and walk where the dinosaurs walked, but it’s important to be prepared for spending two hours out on the trail. Conditions can change quickly so we recommend checking the forecast and advise bringing a few supplies with you:

  • Sturdy and comfortable hiking shoes
  • Water and snacks (please remember to take your garbage with you)
  • Hat, sunscreen, bug spray
  • Rain jacket and/or sweater

For those planning a lantern tour, the temperature can drop rapidly as the sun goes down so it’s important to bring an extra layer!

How can I support the museum?

First and foremost, we'd love for you to come and visit the Dinosaur Discovery Gallery :)

TRMF and our continued research activities are not possible without the generous support from regional, individual and corporate donations. To learn about partnership opportunities with the museum, please email Zena Conlin.
