The Invasive Species Research Conference, co-hosted by Thompson Rivers University (TRU) and the Invasive Species Council of BC, was held June 20 - 22, 2017 at TRU and featured renowned keynote speakers Dr. Daniel Simberloff and Dr. Anthony Ricciardi; fields trips and both oral and poster sessions on a wide range of invasive species research themes.
Adopt-A-Highway volunteer groups in BC can complete invasive plant training, and are given the option to hand-pull non-toxic invasive plants along their adopted area, in conjunction with litter pickup activities. The ISCBC supports the provincial roll out of training for Adopt-A-Highway (AAH) groups, thanks to a partnership with the Ministry of Transportation.Timing is fleixble.
