Rocky Mountain Research Centre

Join us in assessing the feasibility of transforming a former public school into a climate and biodiversity research facility ideally situated in the diverse Wetlands of the Columbia Basin.

concept overview

The town of Parson is host to a vacated public school that has potential to be converted into a paramount research centre or field school in the heart of the Rocky Mountains in British Columbia Canada. 

Aptly situated within footsteps to the Columbia River wetlands, and many other human-managed landscapes, this location offers an outstanding suite of potential living and applied research projects.

Facility Location

Parson, British Columbia, Canada.

The closest largest population centre and International Airport is Calgary, three hours to the east (population 1.5 M). Vancouver is 700km west (population 0.6 M).

Cranbrook is 2 hours south and hosts a regional airport (population 20,000).

The Trans-Canada Highway is 20 minutes north of Parson and runs through Golden (population 3,800).
