About Us

This research project was undertaken by four Geography students at the University of Victoria: Katie Wilson, Sarah Swan, Liam Lepik, and Victoria Lawrence-Jeffery. As students, we are inspired to support local communities through the modern challenges of climate change. We were fortunate enough to connect with community members to learn what solutions help make our communities both resilient to change and more connected to ecological systems. This semester, we were brought together by a group project in a community mapping course instructed by Dr. Maleea Acker and Ken Josephson. Our project is a result of our hard work and collaboration within the community.
