Parks Canada, Vancouver, BC
For my first work term in the Forestry Co-op Program, I worked as an Outreach Team Member on the Vancouver Outreach Team for Parks Canada. My job was to raise public awareness of the national parks system, national historic sites, and national marine conservation areas throughout Western Canada. During my work term, I developed presentations and programs to present to the general public about wildlife safety, species at risk, and Canada’s newest national park, Naat’, hch’oh National Park Reserve. I couldn’t have been happier with my first work term with Parks Canada as it has allowed me to communicate my classroom knowledge to others and taught me how to do so in a creative way. Working with Parks Canada has definitely opened my eyes to several career options and helped me learn more about myself.
