UNBC unveiled its newest classroom today. It’s located 60km east of Prince George in the Aleza lake Research Forest.
The Field Education Centre is built from locally supplied timber and sits on a rise overlooking the McGregor Mountains. The 1,200 foot square foot building can hold groups as large as 50 and will provide a place for students and researchers to conduct in-depth, in the field studies of the local forest ecology.
“This incredible structure here will allow our students, researchers, even community members to come out here, enjoy the incredible forest that we have around us but also study the ecology here,” says UNBC President Dr. Daniel Weeks. “It really adds to the experiential learning for our students that is such a key part of UNBC.”
