JoAnne Nelson, Emeritus Scientist BC Geological Survey, Wednesday October 24

Many of you know JoAnne Nelson from her work with the BC Geological Survey and you know she retired last year. That means she’s free to speak to us about her career.  She’s going to cover a lot of bases for us later this month.

Wednesday October 24 JoAnne will be the featured speaker at the Bulkley Valley Research Centre’s Seminar Series during the noon hour at Coast Mountain College campus. Her presentation is called ‘The Road North’ and it goes into her first summers in the Cassiars.  Then we’ll host her at a special Rocks ‘n Rambling also on October 24 from 4:30 to 6:30 at the SEG Rock Room where the topic will be……rocks and lots of them. The next day we’re hoping for a session of our regular Brown Bag lunch with the various provincial ministries in which JoAnne will talk about the Hazelton Arc.
