Campbell River wins the NFP Battle title
Campbell River is a repeat NFP Battle winner.
This year, the Campbell River NFP has won the coveted Association of B.C. Forest Professionals (ABCFP) NFP Battle Title for the second year in a row with an outstanding series of National Forest Week (NFW) events. This year there were entries from Fort St. James, Campbell River, North Island and the University of British Columbia (UBC). All entries were exceptional and it was hard to pick a winner this year.
This year the North Island NFP is the runner-up who came a close second. Both Campbell River and the North Island involved several communities and reached out to many people with various NFW activities. The North Island has won the Battle several times in the past and is always a strong contender. Fort St. James and UBC deserve honourable mention for their NFW activities. Fort St. James organized its annual grade 5 trip to Bone Lake and UBC organized various forestry events on campus every day for NFW.
“We would like to thank everyone who organized NFW events. It looks like NFW was a great success this year, thanks to the efforts of the many forestry communities around BC,” said Brian Robinson, ABCP spokesperson.
