Field Education Centre opens at UNBC Aleza Lake Research Forest

May 13, 2016

The University of Northern British Columbia has opened a new 1,200 square-foot interpretive centre for log and timber construction on a hilltop overlooking BC’s Upper Fraser area and McGregor Mountains. The Aleza Field Education Centre has been designed to serve as both an educational learning centre and gathering place that is capable of hosting field courses, meetings, retreats, training, and community events. UNBC programs that have used the space so far include the Outdoor Recreation and Tourism Management program and Natural Resources and Environmental Science program. “We are incredibly pleased to see the dream of this outdoor-oriented learning centre become a reality, so close to Prince George and all of our educational institutions in the Central Interior. It really fills an important need,” added Mike Jull, manager of the Aleza Lake Research Forest Society. UNBC
