Thanks Colin & Pat!!

Our summer interns Pat and Colin have now come and gone, and it was great to have them on board.  Both students were able to gain valuable experience working in the industry, while we benefited through their assistience in field activities such as Site Plan data collection, block layout, and reforestation activities. On behalf of the directors and staff, I wish them all the best!!
