I came to Tumbler Ridge in 1989 planning on staying for two years. Thirty years and four children later I am still here. TR turned out to be as wonderful place to raise kids. For 25 of those years I taught Social Studies, History and Earth Science at the local high school making the Geopark a great fit for my areas of study and interest. Our spectacular surrounding wilderness speaks for itself as to why we come to and stay in Tumbler Ridge.
