WEBSITE: Mountain Legacy Project

“At the Mountain Legacy Project we explore all that changes in Canada’s mountain landscapes. Working with the world’s largest collection of systematic historical mountain photographs, we follow the footsteps of intrepid surveyors to retake the original images. We engage university researchers, managers, practitioners and keen mountain folk in understanding the how and why ecosystems, landscapes, human communities change over time. Based in the School of Environmental Studies at the University of Victoria, our work since 1998 involves repeat photography, archival research, image interpretation and analysis, software development, and making these images widely available.”

What’s important about this project is the ability to see photos of fire influenced forests before widespread wildfire exclusion and suppression began.
