Jennifer Stewart, Forest Educator Okanagan-Columbia Zone
With school now coming to an end, we can now reflect back on what an eventful year it has been!! It was great to see all that has been accomplished by the network of forest educators in BC's Interior over the past months, despite some funding setbacks due to the current economic situation in the forest industry. With the approval of government funding this year to assist with the delivery of forest education programs, forest educators were able to continue organizing and hosting forest education events, tours, workshops, career fairs and camps across BC's Northern and Southern Interior, working to educate and inform teachers, students and the general public about natural resource issues.
In this edition of the Learn Forestry News, please take time to read about some of the accomplishments of these forest educators over the past months and about the work and programs of related forestry groups, associations, camps and post-secondaries in our province.
Great work, everyone, and to the forest educators around the Southern Interior, enjoy a restful summer holiday!!
