Wildfire Survivors in Idaho Project

Kathryn McConnell

HCRI member and PhD student Kathryn McConnell is researching how wildfires influence where people move to and live. In recent years, many families have left fire-affected communities across the western U.S. and moved to Idaho. In the Wildfire Survivors in Idaho project, Kathryn aims to document the experiences of moving and settling into a new community from the perspective of those who have experienced wildfire impacts.
