Researcher seeks wildfire experiences from Interior residents

A University of Victoria researcher with roots in Kamloops is looking for participants for the final round of a study looking at wildfire experiences of Interior residents.

Ashley Berard is four years into her work on a PhD from the University of Victoria and about a year into interviewing Interior residents about their experiences with wildfires. She is originally from Kamloops and also attended Thompson Rivers University.

Berard said she is looking to speak with anyone in the Interior who has experienced an impact from wildfires.
