Imagine a day dedicated to giving back … around the world, across Canada and in your own community! Just as Black Friday kicks off the holiday shopping season, GivingTuesday is the opening day of the giving season.
What is GivingTuesday?
GivingTuesday is a global day of giving. After the sales of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, GivingTuesday is a time to celebrate and encourage activities that support charities and non profits. Whether it’s making a donation, volunteering time, helping a neighbour or spreading the word, GivingTuesday is a movement for everyone who wants to give something back.
The Sea to Sky Invasive Species Council is a part of Sea to Sky Gives -our local civic movement for giving back to charities and non-profit societies in the Sea to Sky corridor. Visit the SSISC Giving Tuesday page to donate and help minimize the impacts of invasive species in the Sea to Sky, or share this post to spread the word!

During summer 2015 the SSISC field crew removed all known patches from the Squamish estuary, the River of Golden Dreams, Alta and Green lakes, and many other wetlands throughout the sea to sky!
