Hi there dear readers,
Welcome to another blog. I’ve been very busy with field work, since my last blog entry. It has truly been a dream.
An important component of forestry field work is using an ATV to travel to field sites. At Al-Pac, the Woodlands summer students receive a full day of ATV training.

It has not been long since I last wrote a blog entry, but it seems like so much has happened. After weeks of training, I began to wonder if I was ever going to leave my office and experience the sunshine. Luckily, I started fieldwork in the Woodlands department at Al-Pac.
I recently achieved my summer goal to learn about and work in Poplar Farms.

My name is Calvin Jensen. I am an Environmental Sciences Summer Student at Alberta-Pacific Forest Industries Inc. (Al-Pac). The Forest Products Association of Canada (FPAC) has provided me with the opportunity to share a bi weekly blog about my experiences in the forest industry. I’m very excited to share the work I’ll be doing with you each week.
