The Columbia Shuswap Invasive Species Society (CSISS) is a registered non-for-profit regional invasive species society within the Columbia Shuswap Regional District area. It was established in April of 2013 after a series of meetings and consultations with land managers, residents and other stakeholders with the aim to develop a collaborative and coordinated approach to invasive species management in the region. The CSISS joins a network of 13 regional invasive species groups in BC; these groups work in cooperation with the Invasive Species Council of BC to inspire action, coordinate management and prevent the spread of invasive species within their jurisdictions.
Based on its constitution, the objectives of the CSISS are to:
1) To educate and engage public, private landowners, land and aquatic managers, first nations and others about invasive species and their impacts.
2) To establish and operate invasive species management programs.
3) To do all other things as are incidental and ancillary to the attainment of the above purposes.
