The UBC Geological Field School is located in Oliver, British Columbia adjacent to the White Lake Grasslands Protected Area and the Susie Mine. The new facility will replace existing, aging camp buildings that have reached the end of their lifespan. The Field School complex consists of: a main building with learning, dining and kitchen functions; a faculty cabin; and, heavy duty tent structures for students. The design expression is functional, spare and simple. The Geological Field School will be used by students and faculty of the UBC Department of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences.
