Summer Student Program

In 2013 Estsék’ employed two summer students from Simpcw First Nation. The students had the opportunity to participate in field programs, data entry, and data analysis. This program allowed the students to gain meaningful experience in the field and learn what was involved in planning and executing field programs. The students also worked at the Simpcw First Nation Dunn Lake fish hatchery and learned about fisheries management including salmon rearing and harvesting. Estsék’ expanded the program to three students in 2014.
