Community Work Bees

Wildsight Invermere organizes a variety of hands-on projects throughout the valley where participants are directly involved in conservation work. In 2016, these focused around invasive weed pulls in partnership with the East Kootenay Invasive Species Council. We also continue to organize events at Lake Enid, including spring clean-ups.

Do you have a project you’d like help with? We are always open to ideas. Contact us: invermere@wildsight.ca

Hayleigh Fabrick was one of 10 volunteers who turned up for Wildsight Invermere's first weed pull of the year, at lower Sinclair Creek near Radium. Three staff members of the East Kootenay Invasive Species Council gave a brief overview of the three main invasive species in the area: field scabious, spotted knapweed, and common tansy. They showed the volunteers the appropriate removal methods for each plant and discussed the issues and concerns they pose to our native grasslands and riparian areas. After habitat loss, invasive species are considered to be the second greatest threat to global biological diversity.
