Student-Led Exhibit NOW OPEN

Over the last weeks, our Summer Students have prepared their student-led exhibit "Forestry in the 20th Century: Changing Technology and its Ecological Impact" which is located inside the Museum's Gallery (business hours 10 AM to 5 PM daily). 

Forestry has long been an integral part of the econimic and social climate of Central British Columbia. From booming, to beehive burners, to present technology, there have been a wide variety of tools, methods, and people involved in the forestry industry. 

This exhibit highlights the technological changes in forestry and their environmental impact since 1900. 

Through models, pictures, readings, and interactive pieces, the goal of the exhibit is to investigate how this industry embraced more effective technology while still facilitating the stewardship of available resources and meeting the needs of communities.
