Background

April 2013 marked the official launch of the PlantWise Pilot Program with industry orientation sessions in Kelowna and Fraser Valley areas. These sessions were designed to orient individuals and businesses to the program, relay the impact of invasive plants to BC communities, provide a snapshot of the resources participants can expect, and gain input and feedback to refine these resources.

With plenty of support and positive feedback received from the original Pilot Program, PlantWise expanded to become province-wide in 2014. This involved building strategic partnerships with regional groups already engaged in invasive plant management and education/outreach actions across BC. In 2015, PlantWise has progressed further to embrace new partnership groups as well as emphasize the industry component. Partners range from regional invasive species committees, to gardening and stewardship groups.
