The University of Victoria Geography Department held an undergraduate field camp at Rogers Pass in September 2009 as part of the requirements of Geography 477. Based in the Parks Canada bunkhouse facility, sixteen undergraduate students and a cast of supporting graduate students were able to visit a number of backcountry locations in both Glacier and Revelstoke national parks. An on-line photo album of some of the field camp adventures is at: Geog 477 - 2009.

This page provides links to the formal outcomes of the research projects completed during the latter stages of the camp. Participants were required to prepare a conference style presentation and to submit a manuscript for evaluation. Copies of these submissions are available for download as pdf files using the following links
