Come out to Alpha Lake and learn how you can help survey our lakes and rivers for Yellow Flag Iris. Learn how to identify and report this invasive plant.

Bring your SUP, canoe, or kayak and head out to patrol the lake for Yellow Flag Iris (optional)! Yellow Flag Iris is an invasive species that takes over wetlands, lakes, and rivers, out-competing native species, reducing biodiversity, and blocking water flow. Patches of this plant that are reported will be removed from the wetland or lake.

Wondering what we have been up to? Which invasive species you could be on the look-out for? Where you might have seen the SSISC field crews out and about this summer? All of this can be found in our Fall Newsletter! We crammed it full of photos this time, so take a look!

Would you know a European Fire Ant colony if you saw one? Chances are you would be able to tell fairly quickly if you sat on one. Read through our new Alert sheet about European Fire Ants to find out why! These ants have not appeared in the Sea to Sky region quite yet but have been causing lots of trouble to landowners in the lower mainland and Fraser valley. Find out all you can about them so that you can help spot them early if they do arrive in the Sea to Sky, and prevent further invasion!
