The Royal Canadian Geographical Society will be partnering with the Bell Island Expedition and has recognized the project as their Expedition of the Year.
The Royal Canadian Geographical Society is dedicated to promoting and enhancing public awareness for Canadian geography, and to strengthening the bond between Canadians and their diverse and vast geographical heritage.
As one of Canada’s oldest and largest educational, non-profit organizations, the RCGS, and its iconic publication, Canadian Geographic, has been Canada’s most recognized voice for connecting Canadians with the land, culture and environment in which they live.
The Bell Island exploration team will be working closely with, Canadian Geographic Education in outreach initiatives. RCGS currently provides free geographic educational material and supports over 16,000 educator-members, with membership expanding each year.
The team is extremely honoured by the recognition and looks forward to working very closely with the RCGS in the coming year.
