Hoo Hoo International- Evans Lake Education Camp Projects & Beyond
Mike Hodder- Vancouver Hoo Hoo Club #48

The Vancouver Hoo-Hoo club # 48 has been around since the early 1920's. It has the largest membership in North America and is very active in promoting forest education to the younger generations. Over the years, the Hoo-Hoo club has raised close to a million dollars to help promote this great industry.

Our main focus is working with Evans Lake Forest Educational Camp in Squamish B.C. This camp has about 5000 children attend each year, where they are shown the importance of the forests. We assist the camp in maintaining the buildings, and buying equipment such as vans and canoes. We also have built swimming floats and docks for the water sports equipment and have been involved in both the Temperate Forest Foundation and the Festival of Forestry teacher tours.

Our club's goal is to look for ways to educate those with negative views about the forest industry and to show them that we are working hard to keep this valuable resource that we use everyday sustainable for future generations. The Vancouver Club takes pride in this great industry and will do whatever we can to keep our goals a reality.
