Cheryl Power, UBC Faculty of Forestry’s Malcolm Knapp Research Forest Assistant Manager, received the Association of BC Forest Professionals’ Distinguished Forest Professional Award for an RFP at the association’s annual conference in Nanaimo in February.
Cheryl was one of five recipients of the award, which is peer-nominated by other BC forestry professionals. It is the association’s highest honour for a member in recognition for work that furthers the association’s principles and significantly contributes to the betterment of forestry.
Cheryl is a BC Registered Professional Forester and graduated with her Bachelor of Science in Forestry from the University of British Columbia’s Faculty of Forestry (1984). For 30 years she has been a leader in the Faculty’s field schools, involved in the training of thousands of new professional foresters.
