UNBC's location in northern British Columbia provides strong linkages with natural resources, industry, and resource-dependent communities. Opportunities for outdoor recreation and field research abound in this region. The main campus, situated in the forest above Prince George, is an ideal location for conduct of outdoor labs. Forestry education and research are also facilitated by the 13,000 ha John Prince Research Forest, located near Fort St. James, and the 10,000 ha Aleza Lake Research Forest located near Prince George. Thanks to awards from industry and government, the Enhanced Forest Laboratory provides greenhouse and other research facilities.
