Simon Fraser University Professor Ken Lertzman was awarded the Association of BC Forest Professionals top honour last week.
Professor Lertzman’s research on natural disturbance dynamics, and the structure and composition of old forests has improved forest ecology knowledge globally.
He’s also active with the Haida Gwaii Higher Education Society.
The society holds classes on Haida Gwaii.
As much as his students get from studying on Haida Gwaii, the locals also get quite a bit in return.
Not only is the local benefit academic, there are also other tangible benefits.
