Grade 5 students at Oyama Traditional Elementary School received a presentation on the Mountain Pine Beetle. They also looked at samples of Lodgepole pine trees, different types of beetles, beetle attack wood, and maps showing the extent of the damage in BC.
In October, a grade 5/6 class from First Lutheran Christian School visited the Tolko Mill in Kelowna. They learned how plywood and three dimensional lumber are manufactured.
