Great News for Columbia Shuswap Watersheds: No invasive mussels detected in 2018!
We are thrilled to announce that all 22 water bodies tested across the Columbia Shuswap Region were free of Zebra and Quagga mussels!
Fresh water bodies are not only vital for recreation and tourism, but are also an integral part of the economy in our region.
Protecting infrastructure and native ecosystems from the negative impacts of aquatic invasive species is a priority.
CSISS also provided a variety of aquatic-related outreach in the 2018 field season:
Visited 51 Marinas and 22 Boat launches
Completed 113 boater surveys
Provided Clean, Drain, Dry outreach at 77 events
Thank to our Funders!
Thanks to the Habitat Conservation Trust Foundation, The Shuswap Watershed Council, the Province of BC, and the Columbia Basin Trust for funding our aquatic sampling and outreach programs this year! Thank you to other regional groups for their in kind support and partnerships.
