The Natural Resoures and Forest Technology Diploma offers forest technology courses enhanced by studies of wildlife and fish habitats, bird identification, indigenous plants, First Nations issues, outdoor recreation/tourism, and Earth sciences. The core of traditional, forestbased courses includes technical skills such as measurements, forest protection/health, forest operations and silviculture. All of these studies build on a fundamental understanding of ecology, plant biology, soils, math, English, digital mapping, and GIS. You will learn writing and presentation skills, including conducting research, completing data analysis, writing and presenting scientific reports. You may also take the opportunity to travel for a field school (past destinations have included China, Costa Rica and Ecuador) where students compare approaches to land management with that of BC.
