The Invasive Species Council of BC (ISCBC) is hosting a series of free webinars on invasive species during Invasive Species Action Month.

Everyone is Welcome! We encourage anyone involved or interested in invasive species management, education and outreach to participate.

Invasive Species Action Month 2019 Webinars

May 1, 2019 Webinar - Know What You Grow

Time: 12:00 pm - 12:30 pm Pacific Time

Presenter: Jennifer Adhika, NATS Nursery (an official PlantWise partner of ISCBC)

Overview: Do you know which plants are invasive and which are good alternatives? Know what you grow! Exotic plants, bulbs and seeds promoted as “fast spreaders,” “vigorous self-seeders” and/or “drought resistant” can also be invasive species! Invasive plants often have the very characteristics we seek the most for easy to maintain, ground-covering plants. Join this webinar to learn about “PlantWise” and “Grow me Instead” with one of ISCBC’s PlantWise industry partners, NATS Nursery.
