Work-Study Program- A BCIT/UBC Partnership
Silver Lake Forestry Center : May 22-24
are trying something new this spring!! We are teaming up with BCIT
and UBC to build onto a program that BCIT offers at the coast.
Local grade 11 and 12 students will have an opportunity to get
some "hands-on" experience in forestry by participating in
a two day seminar at Silver Lake Forestry Centre in later May.
Students from Districts #53, 67, 23, 22, 83, 19 and Golden will
be invited to participate. At the camp, instructors from BCIT and
UBC will introduce them to many aspects of forestry both in a classroom
setting and in the field. This pilot project will hopefully lead
to two camps taking place next year... one in the south and one
in the northern part of our zone. We will have more information
in the June newsletter along with pictures and captions recording
the event. A summary of this event will appear on our website in
June and will be available at www.learnforestry.com by
clicking on "Resources".
