Education

OUR COMMITMENT TO EDUCATION 

As a consequence of the expanding population of the Vancouver region as well as the increasing popularity of wilderness recreation it is very likely that NSR’s workload will continue to increase over time. In an attempt to reduce these incidents the team places emphasis on public education. Team members volunteer their time to provide talks to schools, hiking clubs, church and other community groups, staff booths at outdoor shows, and so forth. NSR works closely with AdventureSmart BC to help educate the public on outdoor safety.

If you would like NSR to give a talk for your group, send an email and we’ll try our best to help.
