Who can book?

The Barrier Lake facility’s mandate is to provide accommodation to education-based users. Priority is given to field-based researchers and University credited courses. We have two specialized teachers offering science education programming for Grades 7-12 as well as professional teacher development.  

We offer conference and meeting space for academic institutions, government agencies, scouting organizations, and education-based groups. In agreement with the Alberta Government, the Barrier Lake facility does not offer bookings to tourism-related events or act as a social venue.
