Environmental Co-op at Teck Coal Limited in Sparwood, BC
For my third co-op work term, I’m working as an Environmental Co-op with Teck Coal Ltd. Based out of Sparwood BC, I’ve been working closely with the Fish Team, focusing on fish habitat, planning, and monitoring. So far this term, I’ve helped out with field projects such as stream temperature monitoring, and trail camera maintenance to qualitatively monitor fish habitat and ice levels. I’ve also been working on a project using ArcMap to monitor and track large wood additions and their movement over time. Before working for Teck, I’d never worked for such a large company before, but I feel just as supported as I have in my previous co-op positions. The co-op program is a great way to try new things and gain valuable hands-on experience in your field of study.
