Time to plan your first field trip of the year!  Translink is once again supoprting International Walk to School Week by offering free transit for elementary students and secondary students with a valid GoCard the week of October 4-8, 2010.

The TripEd transit pass intiative - a spin off from the work of BC Field Trips in 2007 - is in the news! How does a $10 annual transit pass for a class sound? Check out the full story in the Vancouver Courier http://www2.canada.com/vancouvercourier/news/story.html?id=e7f09177-0f1f....

The Festival of Forestry has an upcoming FREE field trip for teachers October 22-25, 2009.  Teachers will participate in a three day tour of the south central portion of the province, exploring the mountain pine beetle epidemic and the impact that the beetles and climate change are having on wildfires in our province.  Please see the following web link for details and an online application form.

BC Field Trips is pleased to introduce TripEd, a new initiative to provide a $10 pass to schools, daycares and other community groups to allow them to access Translink for a year!  Yes, that's $10 a year for your whole class! 

TripEd is a new volunteer group that has emerged this spring in the Lower Mainland and is following up on much of the work of BC Field Trips 2007 Transportation themed Field Trip Fair.  In 2007, over 800 people supported better access to transit for field trips. 

If you go out in the woods this weekend, you're in for a big surprise!  May 15- 17 puppies in training from Pacific Assistance Dogs  (PADS) will be testing their confidence at the Capilano Suspension Bridge.

March 20-22 - Pacific Assistance Dogs puppies-in-training will be expanding their horizons this weekend with a visit to Maplewood Farm in North Vancouver.  This event is one of 12 free monthly field trips facilitated by BC Field Trips to help enrich the early learning experiences of puppies training to be assistance dogs to individuals with disabilities.  Show your support for PADS and Maplewood Farm by dropping by for a visit this weekend!

Wow! The response to this year's Field Trip Fair on September 29th has been overwhelming and we have now reached the maximum capacity for our venue at Grouse Mountain. There are 700 people registered for the event!

As has been advertised, Skyride passes will only be made available to registered guests. Please let unregistered colleagues know that we will not be able to do any onsite registration. If you registered before September 19th, we have your registration on file.
