Get an aerial view of the ALRF!…thanks to Craig Farnden for creating this!
Last Friday, a group of volunteers from the community of Aleza Lake built steps to the entrance of the South Knolls Trail, and prepared a great lunch for the group after our work was done. Many thanks to Lloyd, Jerry, Ann and Alva for donating their time, ideas and building materials to the project! The wood chips, used for surfacing, were provided by a brushing crew from the PG Youth Custody Services Forestry Program working along the Upper Fraser Road near Giscome.
ALRF is holding several trail work bees in August and September, every second Friday. If you are interested in helping out, please contact us!
UNBC researcher and senior lab instructor, Roy Rea, has published yet another great photo on the cover of The American Biology Teacher journal. This photo shows a skunk cabbage (Lysichiton americanus) blooming in early spring at ALRF. Click on the image to read the published photo caption, and find out why this plant has such a ‘skunky’ smell!
