Thc Columbia Shuswap Invasive Species Society is leading an assault on invasive plants at Martha Creek Provincial Park on Friday, August 12, from 10 am until 1 pm. It is taking this action to protect Revelstoke’s biodiversity in partnership with the North Columbia Environmental Society (NCES), the Invasive Species Council of BC (ISCBC) and BC Parks.
“Invasive species threaten our environment, society, and economy,” said a statement from CSISS announcing the weed pull. “Their control can be challenging and intimidating on both a small and large scale. Fortunately, options for positive and effective community-based solutions can help control invasive species.”
Everyone is welcome to help out, the statement said. Meet us at the day-use beach area at Martha Creek Provincial Park just north of Revelstoke on Friday, August 12 from 10 am – 1 pm. Gloves, tools, and light refreshments will be provided.
