West Kootenay Forest Education Highlights
Nancie Dohan ( West Kootenay Forest Educator)

Nancie talks to students
about the forest education van.

It has been a busy season in the West Kootenay zone - the ILA Forest Education Van made its inaugural visit to the West Kootenay area Sept. 17-30, 2005, touring two fall fairs, eight elementary schools, and a School District # 8 Professional Development Day. In total, approximately 1,700 youth and general public toured the van. It was well-received by teachers, students, administrators and the public.

Forestry career presentations were delivered to Planning 10 classes in seven of the West Kootenay zone's high schools. The students appreciated the information and resources available from the discussion and the video shown on careers in the forest industry. The Planning 10 teachers were very pleased that a professional, outside of the student's regular teaching domain, was able to present information about possible career paths to their students.




Teachers tour Kalesnikoff Lumber on Pro Day.

Currently, a forestry calendar for 2007 is being assembled for distribution and radio ads on 'How We Manage Our Forests' are being aired in the region. Nancie will also be assisting with developing the National Forest Week presentation that will be offered to elementary schools in the West Kootenay zone during April and May, and she hopes to be involved in Arbour Day and Earth Day presentations.
