We've switched things up a little in this newsletter and we'd love to hear from you on what you'd like to see (or not see) in our e-newsletters.

Join us at INVASIVES 2017
Don't miss the Invasives Species Council's Annual Forum and AGM, being held February 7th - 8th in Richmond BC. This year keynote speaker Tim Readman will presenting on building partnerships. The dynamic program includes hearing from Europe on the new EU invasive species regulations and the challenges faced across the pond in tacking invasive species. You will have the opportunity to join a fun run, participate in invasive speedy sessions, nibble & network and much more. A variety or workshops will be held before and after the forum providing more opportunity for exchange of knowledge and networking. Early bird rates are now available!
BC needs more trained invasive plant contractors. We are providing training sessions to prepare participants for the Industrial Vegetation Management & Noxious Weed Pesticide Applicator Certificate (PAC). This specific applicator certificate permits participants to manage weeds on industrial land, roads, power lines, railways and pipeline right-of-ways including control of weeds designated as noxious on private or public land.
