The importance of a land acknowledgement is not to acknowledge land, but to acknowledge the connection between people and place. It is showing gratitude for the opportunities that our place gives us, and it is an agreement to respect and learn from the peoples who have stewarded the land for tens-of-thousands of years.
Through our partnerships with Indigenous communities and governments we aim to support land stewardship initiatives and incorporate traditional knowledge into our practices.
COLLABORATORS & FUNDING ORGANIZATIONS
We collaborate with a variety of communities, institutions, and government to build on the scope of our research projects and educational initiatives. These are some of the incredible partners that make our work possible.
We are a multidisciplinary group of researchers dedicated to disentangling the impacts of land use, fire suppression, drought, insets, and pathogens on forest dynamics and disrupted fire regimes, while working closely with Indigenous communities to promote land stewardship indicatives and community wildfire preparedness.
Our methods include tree-ring analyses to investigate disturbance regimes and the impacts of climate and humans on forest dynamics. With our graduate students and international collaborators, the Tree Ring Lab has on-going research on fire regimes and forest resilience to climate change in British Columbia and Alberta, Canada and in Northern Patagonia, Argentina.
