Three foresters from Germany visited ALRF earlier this month as one of many stops on a three week tour of the Pacific Northwest. This group is part of a government training program in Germany where new recruits are required to travel and observe forest management practices in other countries. In addition to visiting the Ancient Forest and ALRF, Jon, Steffen, and Hendrik’s trip also includes the Yukon, Oregon, Washington, Vancouver Island and the Malcolm Knapp Research Forest.
The Council of Forest Industries Education Program will be holding their annual Natural Resources Management Camp for School District 57 senior high school students, hosted at ALRF on May 19th and 20th this year. After learning about the art, science and rewarding careers in natural resources, the students will tackle the Amazing NRM Challenge where teams will be asked to complete physically and mentally demanding activities – and have lots of fun doing it!
