Workshop - Agricultural Pests: Practical Tools for Producers (April 16, Williams Lake)

The Cariboo-Chilcotin is home to a diverse and valuable range of agriculture. As climate changes, the effects of invasive species and pests in the Cariboo is expected to become more prevalent and have been identified as a key threat to the industry. Join us for a day to gain practical tools for identification, effective treatment and management strategies for priority pests and invasive species.

Invasive Species Council of BC

Invasive species are threatening BC’s aquatic and riparian ecosystems, such as streams, lakes, and wetlands, and the species that rely on them. They spread alarmingly fast between waterbodies and can create lasting ecological and economic damage, especially to the recreational areas that we enjoy.

Water-based recreation activities, like angling, boating, diving, and hunting, can spread aquatic invasive species to new locations. Plants, animals, and microscopic creatures can cling to clothing, equipment, and boats.
