We seek to fulfil this mission through our undergraduate, post-baccalaureate and graduate programs, our research activities, and our outreach work. This annual report — a stewardship report — describes how we have used the funds the provincial and federal governments and private donors entrust with us.  DEAN'S MESSAGE  While the following report provides the details, it is useful to summarize and highlight some of the main activities here. The table below provides a precis of the recent history along with our expectations for 1997/98. Undergraduate and graduate enrolments continue to increase as programs fill out against fixed first-year enrolment quotas and a new second-year quota for the Forest Resources Management program. We introduced innovations in our Natural Resources Conservation and Wood Products Processing programs this year, and are in the midst of a major overhaul of the professional forestry program. Our extramural research program has grown to the point that it is by far the largest in the University when measured on the basis of extramural funding per FTE faculty member — the Faculty of Forestry is now the most research-intensive faculty in one of the world's most research-intensive universities.  92/93  93/94  94/95  95/96  96/97  Undergraduate enrolment  333  400  452  522  591  685  Graduate enrolment  160  171  180  189  201  212  0  0  0  154  93  115  7,000  12,000  21,000  14,000  12,000  13,000  4,600  5,084  4,939  4,808  4,798  Cost per student '  3,172  3,115  2,781  2,345  2,169  1,936  Extramural funding' ($000)  5,802  5,047  5,079  7,141  10,409  9,500  141  120  121  188  289  257  SIBC diploma enrolment BCFCSN registrants 3  Operating budget ($000) 1  Extramural funding per FTE faculty member d ($000) a  97/98e  -  General purpose operating budget provided by the University.  ^ Budget divided by the weighted full-time equivalent number of students. c  Extramural funding = research funding plus endowment income (until 96/97) and special purpose funds. (Excludes BC Forestry Continuing Studies, University development funds, shared services and program research accounts.)  ^ FTE (full-time equivalent) faculty members calculated from budget-supported positions.  Consider some of the highlights in a bit more detail: •  Undergraduate enrolment rose by 13.2% to 591 students. For several years we have constrained the number of new entrants to the Faculty via Year 1 enrolment quotas for all programs, so the increase comes as a result of increased retention rates (an expected consequence of the steadily rising entry GPAs), the planned roll-out of the Natural Resources Conservation and Wood Products Processing programs, and imbalances in the vintage structure of the students in the Faculty. We expect this rate of increase to continue (primarily as a result of the continued roll-out of the Wood Products Processing program) for a projected total of about 685 students in 1996/97. Women comprised 36.5% of the undergraduate class, up from 20.4% five years ago which was on a far smaller base. Selfreported First Nations students numbered only eight in the Faculty, far less than represented in the population as a whole. We expect that the efforts of our First Nations Forestry and Natural Resources Conservation Coordinator Gordon Prest will begin to pay off in the next few years, and that this percentage will increase towards our target of 5% by 2000. Placement of students both in summer positions and in full-time professional jobs after graduation remains at very high levels.  J 996 Annual Report  1  •  Our graduate program grew by 6.3% to 201 students. At over 3.7 graduate students per faculty member, we are probably close to our capacity to provide high-quality graduate education. The increase is partly due to very high levels of extramural support and the development of cooperative agreements with external agencies (the B.C. Ministries of Forests and of Environment, Lands and Parks; the Canadian Wildlife Service; Pacific Forest Products) to place scientific personnel at UBC who are qualified to supervise graduate students. Total funding for graduate-student support was $2.14 million, a 14% increase over last year's level. Graduate students continue to play a significant role in the delivery of our undergraduate professional programs. This offers an excellent opportunity for graduate students to learn how to teach, but may slow their research progress and demands extra effort by faculty members to monitor the quality of instruction.  •  The second year of our Diploma in Forestry (Advanced Silviculture) program, (offered in collaboration with the Silviculture Institute of BC) enrolled about 93 students. This fall in enrolment during this past year was mainly as a result of a reduced presence of the Ministry of Forests personnel in the program due to Provincial government financial restraint. A new Institute of Forest Engineering of BC was recently established to provide a similar program in forest engineering, and the Faculty intends to adopt this program as a formal UBC diploma program as well.  •  The Faculty continues to lead all Canadian forestry schools in research activity (as measured by success in competitive grant competitions and the overall level of extramural funding). Total extramural funding was $10.4 million, a 45.8% increase from last year's level. Grants from Forest Renewal BC helped offset the general nation-wide downward trend in research support, but we expect this source of support to decline in 1997/98. Although the University-wide data for 1996/97 are not yet available, we believe that extramural support per faculty member in Forestry is now the highest among all UBC faculties.  •  The BC Forestry Continuing Studies Network (which the Faculty helped establish in 1991) served nearly 12,000 participants (nearly 70 person-years of training) during 1996/97, down from the 1994/95 peak associated with massive needs related to the then-new Forest Practices Code of BC. The Network enjoys widespread support in the Province, but sustaining core financial support for this program remains a challenge. After a very thorough external review, we reorganized the Board of Directors to include higher-level representation from the relevant agencies, ministries and organizations.  •  International exchange programs involved a modest increase in participation in the Faculty to 12 undergraduates on reciprocal exchanges with universities in Europe, SE Asia, Australia and New Zealand. Both the Swiss Institute for Wood Engineering and the Fachhochschule Rosenheim have agreed to collaborate in teaching Year 4 and Year 5 of our Wood Products Processing program.  •  Our faculty complement decreased by three (Profs. Alan Chambers, Doug Golding and Peter Pearse retired after long and distinguished careers with the Faculty), and increased by seven: Robert Kozak as an Assistant Professor in forest products utilization; Don Luymes as an Assistant Professor in landscape design; Joseph McNeel as an Associate Professor in forest operations; Steve Mitchell as an Instructor in silviculture; Laura Nagel as an Instructor in natural resources conservation; John Richardson  as an Assistant Professor in riparian zone ecology; and  Paul Wood as an Assistant Professor in conservation policy. We are currently in the midst of searches for Forest Renewal BC Chairs in Hydrology (jointly with the Department of Geography), in Silviculture and in Forest Management. In addition, Prof. George Hoberg (Department of Political Science) joined the Faculty of Forestry as a half-time appointment on a three-year trial basis to teach Forest Policy.  2  UBC Faculty of Forestry  •  We continue to revise our undergraduate programs. We taught the third year of the Wood Products Processing program, and placed all of the students in their second co-op term. Senate approved our revisions to the B.Sc. (Natural Resources Conservation), and we taught the first three years of the new program (this involved a new collaboration with Geography in teaching geographic information systems). With extremely timely and useful assistance from the University's Teaching and Learning Enhancement Fund (created from student tuition payments), we are completing the preparations for an innovative integrated semester involving extensive field instruction and interdisciplinary work. The Faculty has intensively discussed major revisions of the professional forestry program, and we expect to be considering a major revision of that program during the 1997/98 academic year.  •  For each of our major undergraduate programs, the Faculty appointed Program Directors to serve as the first line of contact for student concerns: advising on courses, identifying needed curriculum changes, working out timetable conflicts, etc. This improved level of student services has been effective in increasing levels of undergraduate satisfaction with our programs.  •  The University Research Forests moved to 100% financial self sufficiency with all direct University budget support being removed during the 1996/97 academic year. This change places even greater pressures on improving operational efficiency and developing new revenue sources at the URFs. Particular attention has been focused on improving the teaching and administrative space at the Alex Fraser Research Forest, and some innovative solutions may be possible there. The Ministry of Forests has asked us to consider taking on the management of a research forest in the Northern Interior, and we are collaborating with the University of Northern British Columbia to develop a suitable administrative structure and management plan. The Director of University Research Forests spent one week in Malaysia helping our colleagues at Universiti Pertainian Malaysia develop a management plan for their new research forest.  •  Fundraising in the Faculty of Forestry continued to be successful and our Alumni participation at 34% remained ahead of all other faculties on campus. Our "Growing for the Future" campaign is in its final stages with $2.3 million raised to date. The Faculty and the Development Office recruited a new Forestry Development Officer, Ms. Tara Scott.  Our mission — service to the people of British Columbia through excellence in forest conservation, management and products — has never been more important. Relaxing the standard of excellence would serve the province, the University and — most importantly — our students poorly. Yet excellence will inevitably fall away if our enrolment continues to increase and our operating budget to support each student declines. The Faculty has achieved major gains in operational efficiencies, and we continue to seek other ways to improve program delivery and to reduce program costs. The iron law of diminishing returns inevitably makes this search ever harder and ever less productive as each improvement is achieved. The external community — our Faculty and Alumni, Forest Renewal BC, the B.C. forestry industry, and many private individuals — have generously supported specific programs in the Faculty. Resolving this tension between declining resources available to fulfill our mission and the increasing societal expectations from the Faculty remains our greatest challenge.  Clark S. Binkley Dean, Faculty of Forestry  J 996 Annual Report  3  T  HE Faculty of Forestry offers 4-year degree programs in the following five areas:  UNDERGRADUATE STUDENTS  • Forest R e s o u r c e s M a n a g e m e n t - B.S.F. This major focuses on the multidisciplinary aspects of forest resources biology and management of forested ecosystems for such products as timber, grazing, wildlife, recreation, fish and water. Students learn about the unique characteristics of each resource, their interactions, and the manipulation of forests to yield a variety of desirable products in the context of social and economic environment. The program prepares graduates for responsible careers in forest management as professional foresters. • Forest O p e r a t i o n s - B.S.F.  PROGRAMS OF S T U D Y DRISCOLL, Helen B.Sc. Coordinator, Student Services Phone: (604)822-3547 Fax: (604)822-8645 E-mail: hdriscol@unixg.ubc.ca  This major prepares the graduate for professional forestry responsibilities, with an emphasis on planning, design and administration of forest harvesting operations. Areas of study include: design and construction of forest roads and drainage structures; selection, planning and supervision of logging systems; site protection and rehabilitation; and the development of computer applications for harvesting systems.  Helen Driscoll Coordinator Student Services  • Natural Resources Conservation B.Sc. (Natural Resources Conservation) This multidisciplinary program provides students with a solid foundation in the natural and social sciences underlying management and conservation of natural resources, as well as an appreciation for the political and socioeconomic contexts which affect conservation strategies. Students develop a working knowledge of the tools and quantitative techniques used by resource planners. A notable feature of the program is the Integrated Field School offered in the fourth year which features fully integrated instruction throughout the fall term.

Program Director, Professional Programs & Advisor, Forest Resources Management Phone: (604) 822-4918 E-mail: marshall@unixg.ubc.ca  B.Sc. (Wood Products Processing) This program provides students with a broad knowledge of the wood products industry, including wood manufacturing, business management, and marketing. State-of-the-art wood processing equipment used during laboratory exercises enables students to develop skills in technical processes and operations carried out in today's industry. Graduates develop strong teamwork, leadership, and communication skills. An extensive five-year co-operative option is available. • Forest Science - B.Sc. (Forestry) This major is for students interested in more specialized study of the scientific principles related to the growth, development, and ecology of forest species. Emphasis is placed on basic and interactional phenomena that influence the establishment, growth, and development of trees and other forest resources. The core subjects include genetics, soils, weather and climate, tree form, tree function, ecology, entomology, pathology, silvics, silviculture, and fire science.  4  UBC Faculty of Forestry  •  •  •  The Faculty created three new "Program Director" positions to assist and advise undergraduate students. The broader-based admission policy for the B.S.F. programs attracted ten applicants this year; eight applicants qualified on their own merits and two were unable to meet the UBC minimum entrance GPA. Admitted first and second year students to the revised Natural Resources Conservation program with 90% of existing students switching to the revised program. Twenty-two students are currently employed in industry as part of our targeted work placement sessions in the Wood Products Processing Cooperative Education program.  PLANS FOR 1997-98 •  Implement revisions to the professional forestry program (Forest Resource Management and Forest Operations option). • Conduct the Natural Resources Conservation program's integrated field school for the first time (thirty students expected). • Implement Year 4 of the new Wood Products Processing program and of the revised Natural Resources Conservation program. • Pursue the establishment of a quota on second year admissions into B.S.F. and B.Sc. (Natural Resources Conservation).  Distribution  • Total Enrolment Undergraduate enrolment for the 96/97 session was the highest ever, with a record 618 students including 27 visiting and exchange students. This figure represented a 15% increase over the previous year. Over the past five years the number of registered students has more than doubled.

Don has an active research program in the application of landscape design at the local level. This centres on enhancing the structure and function of parks and other open spaces through the application of analysis and design techniques. He will be teaching design skills to students in both the Forest Resources Management and Conservation programs.  PEARSE, H. Peter Professor Pearse retired after 35 years in the Faculty. His career in forest economics and policy has been exceptional in that it embraced some fundamental changes in British Columbia forest, fisheries, and First Nations policy. Peter has been a key player in the arena of change.  ACHIEVEMENTS IN 1996-97 We developed a proposal (jointly with the Department of Civil Engineering) to seek FRBC funding for a Chair in Forest Operations.  McNEEL, Joseph Dr. Joe McNeel has been hired as an Associate Professor in forest operations. Joe was previously a member of the Faculty in 1989-92, and had departed to pursue a position at the USDA Pacific Northwest Research Station. His appointment is supported in part by the Forest Engineering Research Institute of Canada, and he has an active research program at that agency. His research interests relate to harvesting operations, particularly the design of harvest systems. He will teach in the Forest Operations program, as well as providing the harvesting element of the B.S.F. program. WOOD, Paul Dr. Paul Wood has joined the Forest Resources Management Department as an Assistant Professor in conservation policy. Following a 15-year career as both a biologist and professional forester, Paul obtained his Ph.D. from UBC in 1994. He was subsequently appointed as Assistant Professor at the University of Toronto, but has returned to UBC to continue his research on institutional mechanisms for conserving biodiversity in democratic societies.  • Retirements CHAMBERS, Alan D. Professor Chambers retired after 25 years in the Faculty. Al's interests were in expanding professional understanding of the social aspects of forests and forestry. He served as Director of the Conservation Program in its first years. GOLDING, Douglas L. Professor Golding retired after 21 years in the Faculty. Doug's teaching and research were in the area of hydrology. His academic career followed 23 years as a hydrologist with provincial and federal agencies.  Dr. George Hoberg accepted a term joint appointment, effective July 1997, between Political Science (where he has been teaching for ten years) and Forest Resources Management. He will teach in the area of resource and environmental policy. The Task Force reviewing the B.S.F. program presented a final report indicating a need for program restructuring including a longer and fuller program.  PLANS FOR 1997-98 •  We will lead a Faculty review of the Task Force proposal for our new B.S.F. program and will seek university approval for the necessary restructuring.  •  The search to fill an FRBC endowed Chair position in forest management will be completed. This Chair is expected to play a key role in development of the undergraduate management program, as well as exercise a strong influence on the evolution of forest management in the province.  •  With our two new FRBC endowed Chair positions in hydrology filled, combined with existing staff, we will strive to bring a strong coherent voice to that crucial area of forest resources management.  •  We will expand our teaching in the application of GIS in forestry and complete a search for a new position jointly with Landscape Architecture.  •  We will emphasize expansion of the Forest Operations program as an area of high importance in contemporary forestry.

Following several years of experience in a wide variety of forestry, fisheries and wildlife projects, she became a lab instructor at Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario. In this position, her responsibilities included a third year ecology course emphasizing field data collection and analysis. Laura's main activity in the Natural Resources Conservation undergraduate program will be the development, organization and instruction of a new interdisciplinary Field course for fourth year students. This course will address ecological and social issues in conservation using a field environment. Laura Nagel can be reached at (604) 822-1987, fax (604) 822-9102 or e-mail lnagel@unixg.ubc.ca.  •  Appoint an internationally leading scholar to the FRBC Chair in Silviculture.  •  Our recently secured $4.5 million in endowment for the Applied Conservation Biology program will allow us to fill one Senior Chair position.  •  Appoint a new teaching support technician to collect and curate demonstration materials for Dendrology, Forest Ecology, Forest Entomology, Forest Pathology and Forest Wildlife Ecology and Management.  •  Maintain high level of proposals to NSERC, Forest Renewal BC and other funding agencies.

Research Forester Alex Fraser Research Forest, Williams Lake E-mail: trethewa@unixg.ubc.ca  HE Faculty of Forestry operates two research forests: the coastal UBC Malcolm Knapp Research Forest in Maple Ridge, and the UBC Alex Fraser Research Forest in the interior near Williams Lake. The mission of the Research Forests is to support the Faculty of Forestry in serving the people of B.C. through excellence in education and scholarship in forestry broadly defined. Thus both Forests are dedicated to research and education. The location of the Forests, covering five biogeoclimatic zones and three different tenure systems, offers a wide array of research and education opportunities. The Malcolm Knapp Research Forest operates an adjacent Woodlot Licence which is used extensively for teaching and, to a limited extent, for research. The Malcolm Knapp Research Forest was established in 1949, the Woodlot Licence in 1986, and the Alex Fraser Research Forest in 1987 — the combined areas amount to nearly 15,000 hectares. The Forests provide sites and services for research and educational activities for UBC and other universities and colleges. Over 950 research projects have been initiated to date, ranging in scope from growth and yield studies to the dynamics of predator/prey relationships in lakes, from Liquid Mirror Telescopes to forensic entomology. Currently over 200 research projects are active.  Peter Sanders Director  Malcolm Knapp Research Forest • Sixteen new research projects were initiated. • Extensive road upgrading was carried out in the northern section in preparation for helicopter harvesting in 1997-98. • Two new bridges were constructed. • The salvage from the 1995 wind storm was completed with just over 16,000 cubic metres removed during the year. • An outline of the new facilities required to complete the renovation of the Loon Lake camp was completed.  Alex Fraser Research Forest • Fifteen new research projects were established. • Twenty kilometres of roads which pre-date the Alex Fraser Forest were upgraded to Forest Practices Code standards, with FRBC funding.  In common with most other areas of the economy, financial constraints have changed management strategies. With elimination of support from the General Purpose Operating Fund, the primary sources of income are harvesting revenue and interest on an endowment established for the University Research Forests. The Research Forests hold two field schools for undergraduate students each year; a Fall field school at Alex Fraser for third year students and a Spring Field School at Malcolm Knapp. Numerous continuing education programs are hosted and the professional staff of both Forests also participate in teaching academic courses in the Faculty. Over 20 international students visited the Forests on internship and work experience programs.  • Management and Working Plan #2 was drafted and circulated for review. • Work on several extension projects was initiated with FRBC funding, including a silvicultural systems demonstration over 100 hectares in extent. • A riparian inventory was conducted. • Continuing education activities were hosted for SIBC and other organizations.  PLANS FOR 1997-98 •  Continue to encourage research, particularly where a number of researchers work on integrated projects over extensive areas.  •  Resolve funding for services such as advice to researchers and educators.  •  Continue to upgrade access to the University Research Forests.  •  Plan to accommodate more students at field schools.

Extramural funding sources now provide more than double the level of funding received from the core operating budget. A large portion of our increase in funding is due to the successes of faculty members in last year's Forest Renewal BC (FRBC) research competition — we now have 67 active FRBC-funded research projects. In addition to research projects, FRBC has further supported the Faculty of Forestry with endowed chairs in Applied Conservation Biology (two), Forest Hydrology (two, both of which are joint with the Department of Geography), Forest Management, and Silviculture.

Gordon W. Prest Coordinator  T  HE First Nations Forestry initiatives continue to gain momentum and interest within the Faculty. We have four major activity areas:  We have initiated discussions with various community colleges who might offer Year 1 and 2 of the 4-year undergraduate forestry degree program at a community college campus. This plan would promote access by First Nations students from remote rural areas and potentially limit their relocation time at UBC to two years.  ACHIEVEMENTS IN 1996-97  1. Increasing enrolment of First Nations students in the Faculty.  Increased First Nations student enrolment (from 5 to 8).  2. Developing a strategy and implementing a work plan to incorporate First Nations content into existing forestry programs in the Faculty.  Increased Faculty involvement in First Nations programs.  3. Delivering an "Indigenous Perspectives in Forestry Education Workshop" on June 15-18, 1997.  Faculty unanimously adopted strategy to incorporate First Nations content into forestry programs.  4. Expanding articulation agreements for university transfer credit programs to offer first and second year forestry university transfer courses at the community level.  New course "Perspectives on First Nations and Forestlands " delivered as a regularly offered fourth year course.  We currently have eight First Nations students enrolled in undergraduate forestry programs. These students come from the following First Nations communities: • • • • • • • •  Nlak'pamux (Thompson) Wet'suwet'en Tsimshian Nisga'a Kwakwaka'wakw (Kwakiutl) Sto:lo Ojibway (Ontario) Cree (Manitoba)  A Task Group has been brought together to develop a detailed work plan to incorporate First Nations content into the existing curricula being offered in Faculty programs for the coming academic year. The "Indigenous Perspectives in Forestry Education Workshop" will bring together a balanced cross-section of academic, indigenous, industry and government representatives from around the world to address the topics of Making It Happen, Program Design, Curriculum Models, Program Delivery. A resource guide that summarizes participants' collective wisdom  FIRST NATIONS FORESTRY & CONSERVATION PROGRAMS  PLANS FOR 1997-98 •  Increase enrolment of First Nations students.  •  Develop more culturally relevant content into existing courses.  •  Formalize a laddering process from communitybased delivery centres to Faculty programs.  •  With the inevitable resolution of the aboriginal land question in B.C., it is timely for the Faculty to start to consider the post-treaty period and plan for the future.  •  Dialogue will be developed with the First Nations Council of Advisors, Association of BC Professional Foresters and the Faculty to determine the future educational needs of professional forestland managers in B.C.'s post-treaty world.

New projects are underway which will complement the momentum International Programs began last year. Three major program areas are: International Student Programs, Research and Training Projects and International Visitor Tours. IP continues to operate on a full cost recovery basis, from funds obtained from external sources. The student programs offered through international programs have three components: internships, student exchanges, and the development of a joint degree program in International Forestry. These will be major areas of emphasis for the upcoming year.  Andrew F. Howard Director  uses and the ability of forest policy to encourage investment in sustainable management. We obtained a grant from Conservation International, Washington, DC to work on each of the case studies.  • Forest Concessions on Public Lands  ACHIEVEMENTS IN 1996-97 HOWARD, Andrew F.

We will send 17 third-year undergraduate students away for a one year exchange to the following countries: Australia, Costa Rica, Denmark, Germany, Japan, New Zealand, Sweden, United Kingdom, USA.  We also received a research grant from the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations. The grant is for the development and writing of a comprehensive set of guidelines, procedures, and concrete recommendations on alternative mechanisms for negotiating and administering forest concession agreements on public lands.  PLANS FOR 1997-98 International Student Programs •  Implement an International Forestry Degree Program to allow students at the undergraduate level to take a second degree concentrating on international forestry issues.  •  Increase the number of international internships and work opportunities available to UBC Forestry students to increase their level of understanding of forestry practices worldwide.  •  Increase the number of both incoming and outgoing students on international exchange. This in turn will contribute to the internationalization of the classroom.  This is the largest number of Forestry students ever to participate in the Education Abroad Program.

The Centre was created through a partnership with industry, government, and Forest Renewal BC. We are guided by an industry advisory board, whose members and companies represent all sectors of the industry across Canada. In our first year, we have had many accomplishments. In our research and extension programs, we were awarded nearly $1 million in new funding and started many new projects. This will support graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and new research and technical staff. We have also set up our Advanced Wood Processing Laboratory, a state-of-the-art pilot plant with over $1 million in advanced computer controlled woodworking equipment.  • Education Our education program is comprised of three elements: graduate education, a strong affiliation with the innovative Wood Products Processing Program, and a national industry continuing education program. In our affiliated undergraduate program, students have achieved national recognition through participation in the cooperative education program managed by CAWP. The Co-op program enjoys a 100% placement rate and is rated highly by both students and industry. We contributed to teaching and curriculum development, and have organized and delivered practical laboratory exercises. Our goal for 1997 is to establish a formal graduate program in advanced wood processing. The program will be directed by an interdisciplinary board consisting of faculty associates from Forestry, Applied Science, Commerce, and outside organizations. We also began offering our continuing education program with a unique series of computerbased quality control workshops. New programs are under development in lumber drying, quality assurance, product marketing, advanced tooling and machining, and CNC machine programming.  A strong extension program is essential for maintaining close contact with our industry partners. Our extension program is focused on providing high quality technical services and product testing directly to industry. We also provide an information and referral service for firms needing technical or human resource assistance. During 1996, CAWP focused on the following extension activities: 1) development of a technical services and research team in wood machining, 2) development of an industry-led Quality Standards Council for B.C. manufacturers, and 3) development of the Canadian Wood Technology Network which will establish collaborative linkages between schools and organizations across Canada and publish a national catalogue of education and technical services.  • Research Interdisciplinary applied research, closely linked with industry partners, is the main focus of our research program. To achieve this objective CAWP brings together faculty and research associates from UBC and other institutions, both nationally and internationally. Examples of projects underway are: • Development of optimizing chop saw technologies. • Field studies of optimizing chop saw use. • Real-time quality control systems. • Production planning and control systems for value-added processing. • Lumber drying quality control systems.

This Centre is unique in its support of a novel undergraduate program, broad definition of educational targets, close links between basic and applied disciplines, and focus on forested ecosystems where conflicts between biological diversity and economic activities are most contentious.  • Education Our educational program has three elements: an affiliated undergraduate program, a large graduate program, and short courses for target audiences such as professional foresters, resource managers, the public and the media.  communities such as Nehalliston, Yalakom, and Hot Springs Cove (Hesquiaht First Nation). Centre members also were involved in clarification and implementation ot the Clayoquot Scientific Panel's recommendations.  • Research  We are closely linked to the Faculty's undergraduate B.Sc. (Natural Resources Conservation) program. That program includes a core of natural science courses in forest, plant, and animal ecology, conservation biology and landscape ecology, and a suite of social science and management courses in economics, political science and philosophy to translate natural process into human values.  Interdisciplinary, cooperative research is the key to answering the broad questions of conservation biology. The Centre brings together scholars to collaborate in such research. We are testing conservation biology theories in the context of forested ecosystems, and aim to apply this knowledge to managed forests, parks and natural areas. Among the larger projects currently underway are:  The "Seminar in Biological Conservation" series supported by the H.R. MacMillan Family Fund combines graduate-level instruction and public lectures on important conservation issues. (See the Special Lectures section in this report.)  •  Leadership within the Sustainable Forest Management Network of Centres of Excellence, a national research program focussed on Canada's boreal forests (Drs. F. Bunnell and D. Tait).  •  Inventory and research on the ecology and genetics of tailed frog and Pacific giant salamander populations as these are influenced by forest practices (Drs. F. Bunnell, J. Carlson, J. Richardson).  •  A decision-support tool evaluating economic and biological consequences of forest planning at the landscape level, including a system for enhancing community participation in land and resource planning (Drs.

Plackett Director  T  HE BC Forestry Continuing Studies Network was established as an independent organization nearly six years ago. Our six offices are affiliated with post-secondary institutions having forestry/natural resource programs: • University of British Columbia (Vancouver) • Selkirk College (Castlegar) • University of Northern British Columbia (Prince George) • University College of the Cariboo (Kamloops) • Malaspina University College (Nanaimo) • Northwest Community College (Smithers). The Provincial Office in the Faculty of Forestry at UBC is responsible for overall management of the organization and coordination of provincewide services. The five Delivery Centres are responsible for organizing training activities around the province. The Network's Provincial Board and five Delivery Centre Boards provide input to the operation of the organization. Members of the boards represent the range of stakeholder groups.  We organized the delivery of 580 sessions of 102 different activities, including province-wide and local courses, workshops and conferences. We had close to 12,000 registrants. Some courses related directly to Forest Practices Code Guidebooks and others were in forest engineering, inventory, silviculture and watershed restoration including an increasing number of courses for forest workers. The Network has recently developed a website, with five buttons: "About Us" (organizational background), " W h a t ' s New" (new courses and new sessions of old courses), "What's Popular" (courses that are most asked about), "Where to Find Us" (clickable map with hotlinks to websites for each of the Delivery Centres) and "Catalogue Excerpts" (Networkorganized training sessions from the Catalogue). In July 1996, KPMG was engaged by the Ministry of Forests to undertake a program and organization review of the Network. The conclusion was that the Network is relevant and considered to be valuable in the coordination and delivery of training by the forestry community of B.C. One key recommendation was the formation of a formal Provincial Board with broader stakeholder representation. Provincial Board  • Training delivery: The Network runs its training delivery on a cost-recovery basis in line with the original intent that training delivery costs would be shared by all users, both public and private sector. • Provincial coordination: When the Network was created in 1991 provincial coordination was recognized as key to the long-term success of the training delivery in B.C. To provide provincewide consistency in training quality, availability and registration fees, effective provincial coordination is essential. Included in training coordination are production of two catalogues of training opportunities in natural resource management each year, maintenance of provincial databases (integrated advertising/registration/tracking database, trainer database, catalogue database) and an advisory service on training opportunities (advice on training options around B.C.). Another important task is the interaction with advisory board members and others at a local level to allow for broad-based input from stakeholders throughout the province on continuing education priorities.

Sincere thanks are also due to our 100+ volunteers: instructors from UBC, the Ministry of Forests, UNBC, Canadian Forest Service, and the forest industry; Curriculum Committee members; and Directors.  ACHIEVEMENTS IN 1996-97 Eight professional modules were offered to 164 students, while four technical modules were offered to 72 students, for a total of 2,000 persondays of advanced silviculture education delivered in 1996. In addition, 74 students were enrolled in the Silviculture 1 & 2 correspondence courses. There are now 183 professional graduates, with 133 students currently enrolled, plus 20 technical graduates, with a further 40 enrolled. To build upon the success of the SIBC programs, the Institute of Forest Engineering of British Columbia (IFEBC) was incorporated on April 25, 1996 to develop and deliver a professional program in forest engineering. A joint administrative structure, with shared offices, was established to ensure that both organizations are run efficiently and cost-effectively. The IFEBC program will be designed for professional foresters, engineers, and geoscientists with a minimum of five years of work experience. It will be offered via six, two-week modules taken over a three year period.  PLANS FOR 1997-98 We plan to obtain diploma status from UBC for the new IFEBC forest engineering program. The first module - Module 1: Foundation Principles - will be held May 5-15, 1997 at UBC. A refresher module for SIBC graduates will be developed and delivered October 27-31, 1997 in Kamloops. This session is designed for people who completed our professional program more than five years ago, and are again in need of professional upgrading in silviculture.  financial assistance required to pursue an education in forestry. Tara Scott Development Officer  T  HE Faculty of Forestry's development program continues to meet with tremendous success. The accomplishments of our fundraising program are a direct result of the leadership and dedication of the Dean, faculty, volunteers and our generous donors. Their commitment to excellence has built a solid foundation for upcoming endeavours and the future growth of the Faculty. Our sincere appreciation is extended to all of those who have helped to make our development initiatives a success.  The generosity of the donors to this campaign will ensure that the Faculty has the capacity to provide our students with an education that will inspire excellence. The success of the campaign will reach beyond the Faculty and into our communities by enhancing and strengthening the research and education of British Columbia's forest professionals. Thank you for your continuing support. Students have also joined the fundraising team, with the Class Act program. Prior to graduating, students are already committing their support to the Faculty of Forestry. The 1996/97 class have received commitments and pledges of over $5,000. Forestry students are leaving a permanent reminder of the vitality and achievement of their graduating class. We commend and thank the donors to the Class Act program for their generous spirit. Total donations ($)  ACHIEVEMENTS IN 1996-97 The Forestry Alumni program continues to grow each year, and now has the second largest participation rate on campus. Special thanks must go to Gerry Burch and the Alumni Campaign for their role in obtaining these impressive results. With their strong leadership and enthusiasm more than 570 Alumni contributed in excess of $60,000 in support of their alma mater. The Forestry Alumni program will continue to be a pivotal component of the development program. The "Growing for the Future" campaign, led by Campaign Chair, David Mclnnes (Chair, Weyerhaeuser Canada Ltd.) and Campaign Vice Chair, George Richards, (President and CEO, Weldwood of Canada Ltd.) is winding down to a successful conclusion. Many corporations, individuals, faculty, and alumni demonstrated their confidence in the future of forestry at UBC, by making significant financial contributions totalling over $2.3 million to date. Contributions to the campaign were primarily directed to the equipment and technology fund for the new Forest Sciences Centre (opening in May 1998), and to student scholarship endowments. With more than $520,000 raised in scholarship endowments, we will continue to consider this to be an area of funding priority for the Faculty. As enrolment numbers and tuition costs both increase endowed scholarships will help ensure that students have access to the  Forestry Alumni past giving 1989-1996  PLANS FOR 1997-98 •  Enhance and expand the annual Alumni campaign.  •  Increase the Alumni participation rate in the annual campaign.  •  Strengthen Alumni and donor relations with the Faculty.  •  Secure the necessary funding for equipment and technology for the new Forest Sciences Centre which will open in May 1998.  •  Increase the financial support available to our students. It is our priority to ensure that our forestry programs are accessible to high caliber students, by providing equal access to those students with financial limitations.
