On April 17, 2015 the BC government announced that they will provide over $1.7 million in new grants to help control the spread of invasive plants. The 29 grants will be given to regional invasive species committees, local governments and the Invasive Species Council of British Columbia to support activities and the goals of the provincial Invasive Plant Program.
We are very grateful to the BC government for supporting Coastal ISC’s programs. This funding will be used to continue our education and outreach programming on Vancouver Island, the Sunshine Coast, and the mainland coast. Prevention is our cheapest and most effective tool and public education is an important first step in raising awareness to circumvent the introduction and spread of invasive species.
