Directors at Large:

Rebecca Bowler
“Born and raised in Prince George, I decided to pursue a career in forestry in my home town, starting with obtaining a Forest Resource technician diploma from the College of New Caledonia in 2004, a BSc in both Forestry and Wildlife and Fisheries (2010) as well as a MSc in Forestry (2016) from the University of Northern BC.  I have been working for the Regional climatologist and Regional pathologist of the BC Government (Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations) since the fall of 2015, with duties primarily related to climate and forest health research. I have been involved in the CIF since 2010 as a general council member, the Vice-Chair and now hold the position of Chair of the Cariboo section. I am proud to be part of this great organization that is inclusive to all people with a vested interest in our precious forest resources. In my spare time I love reading a good book, and particularly love being outside walking with my dog in my nearby green spaces (which has a pretty healthy moose population!), camping, kayaking, berry picking, and gardening.”
