BC Parks and the ISC worked together to deliver specialized training programs in 10 BC provincial parks between June and September of 2011. These workshops received great feedback from participants! ISC trainers guided one-day workshops, encouraging parks employees to spot, report, and use best practices to limit the introduction and spread of invasive plants.
As part of this project ISC staff produced a pocket guide, “Best Management Practices for Invasive Plants in Parks and Protected Areas of British Columbia,” modelled on the MoT Best Practices Guide.
This pocket guide informs BC Parks staff and contractors on best management practices for managing invasive plants in BC Parks and protected areas, and is viewable online under Resources.
