My name is Rachel Darvill and I am a Masters student in the Environment and Management program at Royal Roads University. I am conducting a research project in the Peace River region of British Columbia, and I am inviting you to participate in my research project.

I have created a survey and would like you to participate; to take the survey please visit:

The main objective of my research is to compare the use of ecosystem services across interest groups in your region. Ecosystem Services are those benefits that people receive from nature, such as food, water, scenic views, and recreational services. They are necessary for human well-being to persist.  Data collection for this research project will consist of an online survey, followed by mapping sessions, with a select number of participants. The survey will ask participants about their ecosystem service use within the Peace region.

Rod and Gun Club members have been chosen as a prospective participants because of your involvement or interest in the study area. You can choose to participate in either the survey or the mapping component, or both.  If you are interested in participating, please go to the survey link where you can find full details about the survey.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions that you might have about this research, or about participating in a mapping interview.

Thank you.
