In it's 3rd year, the goal of this program is to promote and integrate effective invasive species management into the practices of horticulture industry companies serving the Sea to Sky corridor, and recognize those companies that are making a difference.
The first of its kind in BC, this program grew out of a horticulture forum hosted by the SSISC in November of 2010 where we heard from the industry that there was a lack of education on invasive species and their significant threats (some even reducing property values!).
Learn more about the value of doing business with an invasive-free certified company, who the certified companies are and how to go about getting certified.
