The Fraser Valley Invasive Species Society is a non-profit society. Our mandate is to minimize the negative social, economic, and environmental impacts associated with invasive species. We achieve our mandate through coordination of land managers, education and outreach, and on the ground invasive plant management. Invasive species are considered to be one of the greatest threats to biodiversity world-wide, second only to habitat loss. Already introduced plant species represent 26% of the entire flora in British Columbia (BC Conservation Data Centre, Ministry of Environment, 2012). All citizens of British Columbia are affected by invasive species. Help preserve our natural heritage!
