Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations, 100 Mile House, BC
I worked last summer in 100 Mile House for the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations (FLNRO). As a co-op student working for the Ministry I had the luxury of learning and working with numerous branches that are a part of FLNRO. This gave me the opportunity to explore and expand my knowledge. These experiences included checking on planting operations, conducting reconnaissance surveys of disturbed sites, inspecting water levels of water developments for range, inspecting recreation sites, conducting surveys for riparian areas and stand level biodiversity, and learning about harvesting operations. This co-op term showed me the ins-and-outs of working within the government and did a great job of highlighting the various opportunities FLNRO has to offer.
