August 13, 2018

Royal Roads University has partnered with the Ulkatcho First Nation and Keefer Ecological Services to study how climate change impacts ethnobotanical species used for food. A Royal Roads release states that the project will incorporate Indigenous knowledge with climate science. “We’re grateful for the opportunity to partner with the Ulkatcho First Nation and Keefer Ecological Services to deliver hands-on training in community on a topic of key importance for communities–understanding the impacts of climate change,” said Zoe MacLeod, Director of Professional and Continuing Studies at Royal Roads. Trainees will establish research plots, identify plant species, and interview traditional knowledge keepers.
