Jennifer Stewart, Forest Educator Okanagan-Columbia Zone
Happy New Year!
Happy New Year and welcome to the 9th issue of the Learn Forestry News online newsletter!! Now that the New Year has begun, Southern Interior forest educators are all back and more eager than ever to get into the swing of things once again.
Numerous forest education events are in the planning stages around the Southern Interior and are sure to be a great success in the coming months.
In the Okanagan/Columbia zone, we will be focusing on events such as Forestry Week presentations, the ILA Trade Show & Convention's post-secondary Education Fair, teacher kit resource workshops, ILA forest education van tours, and much more.
A big congratulation goes out to West Kootenay forest educator, Darcee O’Hearn, who had a baby boy this past August, a brother for Alexander and Jill. While Darcee is on maternity leave, her replacement, Toni Appleby, will continue to build forest education in the West Kootenays. Welcome, Toni!!
On behalf of all the educators, we are all so grateful that BC Interior forest education programs were funded once again this year, largely through a Forest Investment Council grant, allowing forest educators to continue forest education promotion through programs, resources and events to K-12 students and to the general public across BC's Northern and Southern Interiors.
