For my first co-op term, I am working as a summer forest technician with Lil’wat Forestry Ventures Ltd. (LFV), based out of the unceded territories of the Lil̓wat7úl (Lil’wat) and Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) Nations. This position has provided me with a unique experience where I have been able to learn a multitude of new skills and gain experience in a variety of works within forest management. LFV has taught me how to conduct both regeneration surveys and land planning surveys in which we collect data in the field and use this data to prescribe future management. More recently, we have been moving into fire season, and I have been preparing to be a member of a contract firefighting crew. I am extremely grateful to be working for LFV and working within the Lil’wat community, for I believe this company is upholding important values often overlooked in forest management and I hope to carry all I learn here with me throughout my career
