Adopt-A-Highway volunteer groups in BC can complete invasive plant training, and are given the option to hand-pull non-toxic invasive plants along their adopted area, in conjunction with litter pickup activities. The ISCBC supports the provincial roll out of training for Adopt-A-Highway (AAH) groups, thanks to a partnership with the Ministry of Transportation.Timing is fleixble.
