Blake Dickens Forestry Digital Slide Collection


a project of CNC Library and Exploration Place
April 2004

view online collection

order higher quality images



On April 20, 2004, Exploration Place unveiled the Opening New Caledonia website, which includes images from the CNC-Blake Dickens Forestry Collection. There are 3,590 images of forest practices from the Pacific Northwest, with a focus on the Prince George area. The images range in subject matter and include topics such as silviculture, forest soils, entomology, pathology and forest ecology. Blake Dickens was a Forestry Instructor at the College and took these photos to enhance the courses he taught. The collection was digitized by students in the College's Writing and New Media Technology Program, with assistance from the staff at Exploration Place. An article about the student project was published in the Spring 2004 issue of the Forrex Link newsletter.
