Clean Drain Dry encourages you to 'clean drain dry' all boats and equipment to help reduce the spread of invasive plants and organisms to BC waters.
Water gardeners, aquarium and terrarium owners can select from a variety of aquatic plants, invertebrates, reptiles and fish. Unfortunately, some of these exotic species have the potential to become invasive. Pets that become too much for an owner to care for are sometimes let loose into nearby water or woods—Don't Let it Loose!
Invasive species are threatening BC’s aquatic and riparian ecosystems, such as streams, lakes, and wetlands, and the species that rely on them. They spread alarmingly fast between waterbodies and can create lasting ecological and economic damage, especially to the recreational areas that we enjoy.
The Communities Pulling Together program enables volunteer groups to learn about and remove local invasive plants. Participants gain hands-on experience by helping to remove an invasive plant infestation in their community.
