Students are standing up for old-growth!
A huge thank you goes out to teacher Gail Hiebert and the 150 students from David Hoy Elementary (Fort St. James) who participated in the BC government’s old-growth strategic review! This public consultation process, which ended on January 31, invited the public to share their views on the importance of old-growth forests in British Columbia.
Thanks to Gail’s dedication to this important feedback period, she motivated 80 intermediate-grade learners to do the online questionnaire and another 75 elementary-grade learners to complete drawings with their messages to the BC government.
