ILA Forest Education Van News
The Interior Logging Forest Education Van has had its annual "sprucing-up". New display pictures were added, some touch-up painting was done and it was ready for the road once again.
A new public display board on the MPB epidemic was recently developed by Deb Sluggett (Okanagan/Columbia Education Liaison) and Debbie Bazzett (COFI Soth Forest Education) and was recently unveiled at the ILA's tradeshow in Vernon.
The van is busy visiting Okanagan-Columbia and Thompson schools during May and June. UBC Faculty of Forest student, Carleigh Johnston, has been hired as driver/presenter and will offer public presentations during the spring and summer. If you would like to book the van for your school or community event, please visit: www.interiorlogging.org for contact info or call Wayne Lintott at 250-503-2199.
