ILA Forest Education Van News

In October, Ann Polson and Betty-Ann McDonald (Canadian Women in Timber), Debbie Bazett (Council of Forest Industries), Debbie Sluggett and Kalon Nahachewsky hosted the forest education van for six classes at St. Joseph 's Elementary in Kelowna .

Two days later, Kalon and Deb S. headed off to Golden for a three day tour, with help from Bob Taylor, Tim Arnett and Scott King (Louisiana Pacific Canada), where they presented to students at Nicholson Elementary, Lady Grey Elementary, and Alexander Park Elementary.

This spring, the ILA Forest Education van will visit schools throughout the Okanagan-Columbia. Debbie Bazett (COFI) will also be hosting the van at Family Environment Day (April 9) in Kelowna.

UBC Forestry student, Geoff Smart, has been re-hired by the ILA from May until August to tour the van around the Southern Interior. Geoff did a great job last summer and hopes to bring the van to many communities, provincial parks, special events and schools again this year.
