Through province-wide cooperation and coordination, the Invasive Species Council of BC (ISCBC) is working to minimize the negative ecological, social, and economic impacts caused by the introduction, establishment, and spread of invasive species.
The ISCBC is a registered charity whose members are involved in all aspects of invasive species management, with the main focus on invasive plants. Members include technical specialists working for government and industry, regional coordinators, Aboriginal Peoples, foresters, biologists, ranchers, horticulturists, recreation enthusiasts, gardeners, and other concerned individuals. Membership is free and open to everyone willing to work collaboratively.
The Council's Board of Directors and five committees have these specific goals:
- To educate the public and professionals about invasive species and their risk to ecosystems and economies through activities such as workshops, seminars and newsletters;
- To coordinate and fund research relating to invasive species and make this available to the public; and
- To undertake and support actions that improve the health of BC’s natural ecosystems.
