Calgary is located in the heart of the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin within sight of the Canadian Rockies. Our vibrant city is blessed with two of the largest urban parks in North America, Fish Creek Provincial Park and Nose Hill, in addition to the Weaselhead and Glenmore Reservoir, which are walking distance from Mount Royal University. Local attractions include Fort Calgary, the Glenbow Museum, Heritage Park, Calgary Zoo, TELUS Spark Science Centre, and the Military Museums. Spruce Meadows is a world-class equestrian facility that will be hosting the National on 9–10 June 2017. Our technical program explores much of the geological time scale and is intended to bridge across the North American Rocky Mountains. The field trips offer opportunities to explore our local UNESCO World Heritage sites, such as the bone beds at Dinosaur Provincial Park and the Burgess Shale Trilobite beds in Yoho National Park, the Royal Tyrell Museum of Palaeontology, as well as the landscapes, geology, hot springs, and innovative carbon capture facilities of Alberta.
