Indigenous Community Toolkit for Managing Invasive Species
The Aboriginal Community Toolkit for Invasive Plant Management was originally developed in 2011. This document, the Indigenous Community Toolkit for Managing Invasive Species, is an update and expansion of that resource. With the support of the Invasive Species Council of BC (ISCBC), in partnership with the Indigenous Invasive Species Network and Indigenous Services Canada, the toolkit was updated to offer current and relevant support to Indigenous communities across BC, as they work to reduce the impact of invasive species in their territories.
Indigenous Communities Sharing Stories About Invasive Species Video
As part of the Indigenous work of the Council, the Invasive Species Council of BC produced a video to showcase the work Indigenous communities are engaging in around invasive species. This was produced in conjunction with the INVASIVES 2018 Forum and several of the case studies highlighted in the Indigenous Community Toolkit for Managing Invasive Species.
