Operational Planning Meeting: We are reviewing the Columbia Shuswap 2014-2019 Operational Plan in order to create a revised 2020-2025 Operational Plan, and we’re looking for your input! The Operational Plan helps guide invasive species management within the Columbia Shuswap Regional District and provides information on priority invasive species, planning, prevention, best management practices, enforcement and evaluating successes.  In the updated 2020-2025 Operational Plan, we will be looking at including a watchlist for invasive animals, aquatic invasives, and pathogens in the Columbia Shuswap region (based on Provincial government lists).

Annual Land Manager Meeting: We are completing the annual review of the Priority Invasive Plant lists from the Columbia Shuswap Operational Plan. The Priority Invasive Plant lists help guide inventory, treatment, monitoring and data management of invasive plants within the Columbia Shuswap Regional District. The goal of this meeting is to enable land managers to provide guidance and input on the Priority Invasive Plant lists. The meeting objectives are to: 1) Share updates on invasive plant management activities of each organization; and 2) Revisit prioritization of invasive plant species and activities for treatments, inventories, monitoring and data management.
