Science Overview

As part of our original club constitution, we are committed to the promotion of scientific study of alpine and glacial regions, and to the dissemination of knowledge concerning mountains and mountaineering. We partner with Canadian mountain research initiatives such as the Canadian Mountain Network and provide financial and in-kind support to many scientific projects and expeditions in alpine environments through our Environment Fund.
