Invasive Species Council of British Columbia

New Activity Books Inspire Youth to Take Action Against Invasive Species

Published October 26, 2021

The Canadian Council on Invasive Species (CCIS) and their partner and Chapter Network member, the Invasive Species Council of British Columbia (ISCBC), are pleased to announce the digital release of two new educational resources for youth. The resources, “Invasive Species on our Landscapes” and “Invasive Species in our Waters”, designed for children aged 6 to 12, feature engaging colouring activities and learning activities.

“Invasive Species on our Landscapes” teaches children about PlayCleanGo, an initiative to stop the spread of invasive species by recreation enthusiasts in parks and natural areas.

The second book, “Invasive Species in our Waters”, teaches about Clean Drain Dry and the simple actions everyone can take to prevent the spread of invasive aquatic species in waterways.

These resources include information on what makes a species invasive, how to identify invasive species and what actions children can take to help build healthy habitats across Canada.

Both books are available for free download on the CCIS and ISCBC websites.

CCIS and ISCBC gratefully acknowledge the sponsor of this project, TD Friends of the Environment Foundation (FEF). Through this funding, TD FEF is helping to inspire the next generation of invasive-aware conservationists.
