Summary of a Workshop on Funding Options for Invasive Plant Management (2008)

ISCBC hosted a “think-tank” workshop in Richmond, BC in November 2007. The workshop’s main objective was to develop shared recommendations for long-term stable funding for invasive plant management in BC, with specific objectives to:

  1. Provide background information on historic and current approaches in BC;
  2. Examine funding models from the United States and Alberta; and
  3. Develop a suite of tangible recommendations for funding coordination and management of invasive plants in BC from diverse sources.
