Interested in participating in Adventures in Geography (GEOG 470) and spending 5 days in California next September?

Are you passionate about Sustainability, Urban Geography and Transportation Planning? Then consider travelling with a UFV urban planner, transportation specialist, and earthquake scientist to San Francisco to learn how these disciplines intertwine and shape this dynamic city.

Sept 14-20, 2014 GEOG 470 - 5 credits Cost: $900 plus tuition

On this trip you will use public transit and bicycles to tour San Francisco’s famous neighbours and districts, such as Chinatown, Fisherman’s Wharf, Haight-Ashbury, Nob Hill, Tenderloin, and others. From San Francisco we will travel by train to UC Davis to meet planners and professors keen on sustainability. On another day, we'll hike across the San Andreas fault in Los Trancos Open Space Preserve and visit the U.S. Geological Survey Menlo Park Science Centre to meet earthquake specialists. And don't forget Alcatraz, SF's local music scene, and California vineyards!
