PlantWise is a consumer and industry education program designed to build understanding of the problems caused by invasive species, increasing demand for non-invasive plants, and to support the horticulture industry’s transition to becoming free of invasive species.
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.
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.
Managed by the Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development, IAPP is a web-based database that stores information on comprehensive invasive plant data in BC.
Calling all youth! Are you interested in taking action in your community? Are you excited at the thought of gaining skills and experience in event planning, outdoor fieldwork, communications, project management and much more? Join youth across BC to take action to protect BC’s environment and landscapes. Starting in three regions of B.C. (Greater Vancouver, Kamloops, and Williams Lake) we are inviting youth to volunteer to help protect their communities from new and spreading invasive species - whether on land, in parks and school yards or in lakes and rivers.
