More than 10 years ago while Rick was President (volunteer) at the Canmore Museum and Geoscience Centre, the Museum received several Canadian Geological Foundation (CGF) grants for displays which Rick was involved in – 1) 3 posters of hikes in the Canmore area where world class geological outcrops can be seen (Devonian-age reef at Grassi Lakes, Exshaw shale at Jura Creek and the major fault at Mt. Yamnuska) and 2) “Coral Reefs: the Present is key to the Past” Gord Tebbutt Memorial Devonian Reef display. These are now on display at CRESRC, on loan from the Museum. In 2017, CRESRC received a CGF grant to add a 4th poster regarding the 2013 Cougar Creek Flood to the cube display.

The Museum helped start up the CRESRC facility by supplying a number of initial displays which were no longer of interest to the Museum. The Operation Bow Athabasca display, the Gord Tebbutt Devonian display, the Hike poster display, geological journals for the extensive CRESRC library plus some other miscellaneous materials. Some of these are being loaned on a long-term basis.
