Welcome & News Blog
For all news SSISC related, have a look at our July 2016 Newsletter. This is the busiest time of year for us, and we have lots of great programs up and running!
We would like to send a big thank you to the Community Foundation of Whistler for their continued financial support towards on-the-ground inventory, control, and monitoring of invasive species, as well as our Education, Outreach, and Training programs. Thanks #CFOW! Our Sea to Sky ecosystems would be a very different place without you! #invasivespecies #bcinvasives
May is Invasive Species Action Month in BC, and it is a great time to get to know our local invasive plants a little better. It is as easy as playing "I Spy" as you drive up and down the highway. Many invasives are super obvious as they flower throughout the season, and easy to spot in particular areas. To learn more, check out these I Spy hints in the Whistler Question:
Week #1: Yellow Lamium
Week #2: Japanese Knotweed
Week #3: Scotch Broom
Week #4: Yellow Flag Iris
Want to know what we've been up to all year? Take a look at our 2015 Annual Report. It is a condensed, easy to read version of all our programs and projects. We'll be talking about all of this at our Spring Meeting and AGM April 20th 10am-12pm at the Pemberton Community Centre. Everyone is welcome and it is a great way to find out how you can help! We also have a guest speaker from SFU who will be sharing his knowledge of invasive Bull Frogs with us. See the spring meeting agenda here.
