Opportunities for Field Research

2013 Seed Grant Opportunities for Field Research

As part of our forest research and education mandate, the not-for-profit Aleza Lake Research Forest Society endeavors to make funds available each year for seed grants to UNBC and allied researchers undertaking new field research (or significant new directions of existing ALRF research) at the Aleza Lake Research Forest (or ALRF).

Dr. Juan Carlos wanted to add a practical / hands on component to his UNBC Forestry 209 class.  I had a great day hosting this field tour visiting old growth and managed areas while discussing stand dynamics, impacts of climate, slope, aspect, soil and water on tree growth.
