Thanks for signing up, Ranger! Here is all the information to get the most out of your day:

10:00AM – 02:15PM: Main Training

Transit/Parking & Venue Information
  • TheEgg is on the north side of West 3rd Avenue, near the corner of Manitoba Street.
  • There is metered street parking, as well as pay-parking lots nearby.
  • The nearest public transit stops are bus routes 3, 8, 19, and 84, or a 9-minute walk from Main Street Science World Station.
  • There is room at the venue to securely park your bicycle.

We will be using the Northwest Rangers regional training manual, which is acceptable training for most regional events in BC, Washington, and Oregon. There is not yet a trainee manual that we can share with you, however, you can prepare yourself by checking out the Black Rock Ranger Manual, as it is the foundation of our training.

What To Bring
  • A chair or cushion (the venue does not provide chairs and the floor is concrete!)
  • Notebook and pen
  • Water bottle / cup
  • A snack (we will have only two 10min breaks, no lunch)
Post-Training Ranger Social

After training, you are invited to decompress and share your thoughts & experiences at the Ranger Social. Exact destination TBD; we will most likely be heading to a pub in the area.

(Other Ranger social events are being planned for Vancouver and Victoria; stay tuned!)

Thank You, Ranger!

It takes a community to help make our events a compassionate and supportive place. Thank you, Ranger, you are so appreciated.
