Endless Opportunities in the Forest Industry: Visiting Local High Schools

In November, Jennifer and Kalon toured recruiters from the forestry programs at UBC and Selkirk College to nine schools in the Okanagan-Columbia zone.  During the week, forestry instructor Pete Schroder (Selkirk College) and forestry recruiter Tristan Banwell (UBC) talked to 395 Grade 10 - 12 students about the vast array of employment opportunities in the forest industry.  The students gained overall knowledge about forestry, in addition to earning about job opportunities.  The following schools participated:  Golden Sec., Revelstoke Sec., Salmon Arm Sec., W.L. Seaton, Vernon Christian Middle High, Okanagan Mission, Mt. Boucherie, South Okanagan Sec., and Princess Margaret Sec.
