Sarah Mukai in Johnson Bay, Rivers Inlet (Part 2)

Sarah Mukai in Johnson Bay, Rivers Inlet (Part 2) from hanspetermeyer on Vimeo.
Sarah Mukai is a forester with Interfor, based in Campbell River. In this, my second interview with Sarah, she talks about what got her, as a young woman growing up in Vancouver, into BC's forest industry. We were sitting on the barge next to a floating camp in Johnson Bay, just off Rivers Inlet on BC's mid-coast region. This camp was in place to host a crew of "brushers" - people who go into a regenerating forest and "weed" the new forest of species that limit the growth of trees. I was in the Johnson Bay area in mid-August 2011, taking photographs and talking to people working in the woods.
