On Wednesday August 22nd from 7-8:30pm the Weed Warriors from East Kootenay Invasive Species Council (EKISC) will take a look at your weed samples, and discuss how to manage invasive weeds. The Marysville Eco Park is no stranger to invasive weeds and has been battling a few species itself. At this event we will walk the park and help to manage a few of our invaders in addition to taking a look at your own. Snacks and drinks will be provided. Please bring gloves if you have them, extras will be provided.
Invasive plant species continue to move into our region at an alarming rate. Without the action of residents, there are not enough resources to battle the threat. Heightened public knowledge about identification and management of invasive species can lead to more effective removal of invasive plants and restoration of native plant communities.
