Lodge owner and high school teacher Jim Boulding gave students free accommodation. The youngsters supplied their own food and sleeping bags. Activities included field studies, nature walks, lake and forest ecology, natural resource management, dams and reservoirs, and the social and physical environment. The ‘groove-in’ follows on from the former Eco-Conference held at Strathcona Lodge some weeks ago.
