Columbia Shuswap Priority Invasive Plant Lists
The regional priority invasive plant lists help guide inventory, treatment, monitoring and data management of invasive plants within the Columbia Shuswap Regional District. Annually, land managers meet to discuss and review these list and ensure they align with Provincial lists.
Provincial Priority Species List
Invasive species are prioritized at a Provincial scale using a science-based risk assessment process by the BC Inter-Ministry Invasive Species Working Group. Management actions are further determined based on these priorities at a both Provincial and Regional scale and depending on available resources and treatment methods. To view current Provincial Priority Species information, visit their website here. The current (March 2021) Provincial Priority list can be viewed here.
