Introduction to Forestry - Work Study Program

Silver Lake Forestry Center : May 22-24

This is something new!! Grade 11 and 12 students from throughout the Okanagan-Columbia have been invited to attend a 2½ day forestry program run by volunteer instructors from BCIT and UBC. Silver Lake Forestry Camp has been chosen as the site for this pilot session.

It is a chance for students to gain "hands-on experience" and explore some of the concepts that are taught in post-secondary forestry/natural resource science programs throughout BC. At the end of the camp, students will receive a certificate for their accomplishments.

If this project proves to be a success, we will offer two camps next year. one in the north and one in the southern area of our zone.
