David McDonald, from the Maritime College of Forest Technology, made a return visit to the Ranger School at Wanakena after Mike Bridgen's visit to MCFT. His impressions can be found in this previous article. Check out his observations in this report. David has some great insights into the similarities (same educational philosophies and approaches) and differences (administrative organizations) of the two Ranger Schools. Both schools are dealing with the changing needs of the forestry profession, the interests of the students, and the need to keep enrollments up. The illustrations are fantastic!
