Canal Flats Weed Pull

Grainger Road between Stevens Ave and Luck Ave, Canal Flats

Wildsight Invermere and the East Kootenay Invasive Species Council (EKISC) are joining forces to host a weed pull in the bighorn sheep habitat around Canal Flats. This is part of our Bighorn Sheep Conservation project, helping to preserve and enhance the ecology of the sheep’s habitat and winter foraging grounds. 

Everyone is welcome, especially local residents and recreationalists who would like to learn how to identify and remove invasive plant species from the bighorn sheep habitat in your neighbourhood. Training will include identification and control methods, as well as understanding the impact of invasives and recreation on the sheep and other wildlife. We will spend around 2 hours out on the trails pulling up and bagging the weeds. Gloves and bags will be provided, or bring your own, and enjoy a complimentary barbeque afterwards from 12.30pm.

Meet at the Canal Flats Village Office carpark at 10am.

This event is in part funded by the Columbia Basin Trust’s ReDi grants, along with funding from the BC Conservation and Biodiversity Award, Fish and Wildlife Compensation Program, RDEK’s Columbia Valley Local Conservation Fund, and Village of Canal Flats, that support our Bighorn Sheep Conservation program.
