For my summer co-op work term I worked for Strategic Natural Resource Consultants as a Forestry Engineer. Strategic is not a licensee itself and the better part of my work took place on lands operated by Western Forest Products. My primary duties included road and cutblock layout and stream traversing however there were also many opportunities for me to work for other departments such as timber cruising. This was my first time on Vancouver Island and I found the forests breathtakingly beautiful.

Initially it was the beautiful landscape – a bountiful wetland valley nestled between two mountain ranges – that made me love this place, but as time passed, the people I met and the experiences I had shaped this work term into one of the best summers I’ve ever had.
