Invading Columbia Lake – postponed

Invermere Branch
Columbia Lake Provincial Park parking lot

This event has been postponed until next spring/early summer when vegetation is in bloom.

The east side of Columbia Lake is a treasured jewel. It holds special significance to the Indigenous People who have resided there from time immemorial and today, much of its shoreline is part of the East Side Columbia Lake Wildlife Management Area (WMA). Designating this 6886 Hectares as a WMA provides an important winter range for ungulates, staging areas for waterfowl, and vital habitat for many other species. 

Join us on Thursday morning, August 24, at Columbia Lake to help protect this special area by locating, identifying and disposing of invasive terrestrial plant species. This event is  part of our Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep program and is in collaboration with our friends at East Kootenay Invasive Species Council.
