Invasive Species Council of Metro Vancouver
The Invasive Species Council of Metro Vancouver, formerly the Greater Vancouver Invasive Plant Council, is a non profit society that is working to improve the way we manage invasive species in the Metro Vancouver region. There are many biological invaders in our region that threaten the environment, economy and public safety. The purpose of this site is to provide you with information about invasive species, specific species of interest in our region, control methods, ISCMV's services and to keep you updated on invasive species activities in the region.
The ISCMV hosted the third Stakeholder Session for the development of the Regional Invasive Species Strategy for Metro Vancouver on February 19th at Gleneagles Golf Course in the District of West Vancovuer. For those that missed this session, we are looking for your input! Please take advantage of our online opportunity for feedback by March 5th, 2014.
While we are currently out fighting the good fight against invasive species this field season, you can check out how much we accomplished in 2012! Our 2012 Annual Report is full of our control and outreach statistics as well as suggestions on how you can get involved and help us out through participation on one of our committees.
