Aquatic Invasives 101

Learn how to identify & prevent the spread of aquatic invasives

If left to invade, aquatic invasive plants and animals can quickly take over a waterway. This can reduce critical habitat for native species, limit recreational activities, and impact real-estate value of nearby land.

Even though British Colombians aren’t gathering in large groups this summer, many people are still heading out on the water for solo or household adventures. If you plan on spending time floating through our local waterways or soaking up the sun beachside this summer, we need your help!
