The Invasive Species Council of British Columbia (ISCBC), in partnership with TransCanada Corporation is pleased to announce a new training program on invasive species in BC, with a special focus on BC’s North, titled “Invasive Species in BC—You Can Help Prevent the Spread!”

ISCBC Executive Director, Gail Wallin said “Preventing introduction is by far the most effective way to avoid economic and environmental losses. Following prevention, early detection is the most effective and lowest cost way to battle invasive species. By putting more “eyes on the ground” across BC, this course will greatly improve our ability to detect and respond to these threats. TransCanada’s support of this new course will really help reach key populations and regions across northern BC to better combat invasive species.”
