Celebrate Invasive Species Week!

 

The BC government has, in recognition of the importance of fighting plant and animal invaders, officially proclaimed June 9 – 15, 2014 as Invasive Species Week.

Invasive species matter.  Even though they have harmful effects on our immediate environment they are actually one of the slow-motion natural disasters we can actually tackle as individuals. Be a part of the solution and learn more about how you can help protect our natural environment by attending these local Invasive Species Week Events.
