Featured Member Organizations

The Sea to Sky Invasive Species Council (SSISC) is a registered charity that aims to minimize the threat of invasive species that impact on the environment, the economy and human and animal health. We do this through on-the-ground inventory, control and monitoring of invasive plants and animals, in addition to education, outreach and training programs; working closely with the network of BC RISOs (Regional Invasive Species Organisations), ISCBC, governments, first nations, industry, and private landowners.

The Central Kootenay Invasive Species Society is a network of partners that collaborate to minimize the impacts of invasive species on the ecosystems, communities and economy of the Regional District of Central Kootenay and Regional District of Kootenay Boundary Area A and B. CKISS program areas include, education, aquatic invasive species monitoring and control, terrestrial invasive species monitoring and control, and research.

The Northwest Invasive Plant Council's mandate is to "provide coordinated support, education, inventory tools, assessments and treatments for stakeholders involved in various aspects of invasive plant management." With funding from the province, municipal and regional governments, utilities, and other organizations, the NWIPC manages invasive plants and promotes awareness of the impacts of invasive plants over land base of approximately 37 million hectares - about 1/3 of the province.
