Selkirk College students in the Integrated Environmental Planning (IEP) Program dug a little deeper into their studies at the end of the semester along the banks of the Lower Arrow Lake.

Working with the Columbia Power Corporation, a field school of Selkirk College Integrated Environmental Planning Program students spent the end of their semester doing important restoration work just outside of Castlegar.

Applied Science Technologists & Technicians of British Columbia recently awarded School of Environment & Geomatics students excelling at their recent conference.

Last month, students of the School of Environment & Geomatics took part in a day-long conference held on the Castlegar Campus to present scientific findings from months of applied research. Recently, five students who excelled at their presentation were awarded for their work.
