Blaire is from Nelson, BC and has been living in Cranbrook for the last few years. She is a self-proclaimed bird nerd and can usually be found with binoculars around her neck. In addition to birding, she enjoys learning about the natural world and hiking and exploring in the Kootenays.
Blaire is a graduate of the Recreation, Fish, and Wildlife Program at Selkirk College and is currently working towards a Bachelor of Science in Wildlife and Fisheries from University of Northern BC.
Over the last few years Blaire worked as a field technician with FLNRORD, the Fish & Wildlife Compensation Program, and the University of Northern BC. Highlights from these positions included collecting data for a hybridization study of Westslope Cutthroat Trout and Rainbow Trout in the East Kootenays, surveying for Northern Leopard Frog right here in Creston, and monitoring a nest box population of Mountain Chickadees in Kamloops.
Blaire is excited to be working as a Wildlife Technician for the CVWMA and looks forward to getting to know the Creston area, learning about the many species that call the CVWMA home, and meeting the people that recreate here. Be sure to introduce yourself when you see her!
