Invasive Species of the Meewasin Valley – Webinar

November 22, 2023 12-1 PM

Invasive Species were identified as the number one threat to the ecological integrity of Meewasin Valley in the 2017 Meewasin Valley-wide Resource Management Plan.  Meewasin’s Resource Management Officer, Renny W. Grilz, PAg, will discuss the various invasive species that are found in the valley, some of the new arrivals that are popping up, and the ones Meewasin is on the look-out for.  Renny will also discuss Meewasin’s integrated invasive species control program and the different approaches Meewasin uses in controlling invasive species in the Valley.
