Join this webinar, which kicks off BC's Invasive Species Action Month 2018, if you are interested in planting a native plant garden or want to learn how to inspire gardeners to transform their own landscapes to easy-to-care-for, water-conserving, beautiful native plant gardens that attract birds, bees, and butterflies. Kathy Kramer founded and coordinates the Bringing Back the Garden Natives Tour, which will take place in the San Francisco Bay area on Sunday, May 5. This award-winning tour features thirty-seven Alameda and Contra Costa county gardens that are pesticide-free, water conserving, provide habitat for wildlife, and contain 60% or more native plants.

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.
