GeoTour guide for Kamloops, British Columbia: M183-2/5810E-PDF

"Kamloops, like any other community, is dependent on the Earth for water, food, materials, and energy. Not only does the Earth provide resources, but it accepts our wastes. This GeoTour field guide explores how the community of Kamloops lives on, lives from, and lives with, the land. What earth materials underlie this landscape and how do they influence our use of the land? What nearby mineral resources do we depend on? What earth hazards do we need to accommodate or avoid? Where does our water supply come from? Where does our waste water go? Where does our garbage go? Where does the energy that fuels our lives come from? The answers to these questions illustrate how our landscape sustains our lives. This guide takes us on a tour of the geological landscape of Kamloops. Many GeoTour locations may be familiar to you, but this guide hopes to provide you with new way of looking at the land, with what we might call “landscape eyes”"--p. 3.
