Undergraduate Intern with Alex Fraser Research Forest in Williams Lake, BC
For my second work term, I have had the pleasure of working with UBC’s Alex Fraser Research Forest in Williams Lake, BC. As a summer intern, I am involved in a variety of projects around the research forest including silviculture, operations, and education. So far this summer, I’ve worked on planting quality inspections, block layout, GIS mapping, and more. This work term has allowed me to build on skills gained from my previous position while learning new things as well. In the coming months, I am looking forward to working on silviculture surveys and implementing a brushing contract. Overall, the co-op program is a great way to get hands-on experience and gain clarity towards future career paths.
