Our Outreach Programs
CSISS aims to engage residents, stewardship groups and land managers about a variety of invasive species issues. In partnership with the Invasive Species Council of British Columbia (ISCBC) and PlayCleanGo, CSISS is able to share our knowledge across the region.
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.
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!
