Executive Director, ISCBC
The Invasive Species Council of BC (ISCBC) is a registered charity working to minimize the ecological, social, and economic impacts caused by invasive species. Their goals are to: educate the public and professionals about invasive species and their risks to ecosystems and economies through activities such as workshops, seminars and newsletters; coordinate research relating to invasive species and make this available to the public; and undertake and support actions that improve the health of BC’s natural ecosystems. For more information or to find your local invasive species committee visit www.bcinvasives.ca.
The PlantWise Program was developed under the guidance of an Advisory Committee including representatives from the BC Landscape and Nursery Association, growers, retailers, landscapers, Master Gardeners Association of BC, and invasive plant specialists.
Funding for this project has been provided by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada and the BC Ministry of Agriculture through the Canada-BC Agri-Innovation Program under Growing Forward 2, a federal-provincial-territorial initiative. The program is delivered by the Investment Agriculture Foundation of BC.
