First Nations Invasive Plant Forum 2013

First Nations Invasive Plant Forum 2013

On Nov. 19, 2013 the Northwest Invasive Plant Council (NWIPC) held a one day Forum and Workshop: Controlling Invasive Weeds: Exploring Opportunities for First Nations at the Native Friendship Centre in Prince George, B.C. The forum was intended for First Nations community leaders (especially those responsible for lands and resources), Elders, Band Managers, and past and present Invasive Plant Control Program Managers. The purpose of the forum was to identify opportunities to improve and enhance the working partnerships between First Nations and the NWIPC, and also raise awareness for the participants so that they would bring it back to their communities. Representatives from nine First Nation communities across the region attended the event. With full participation, great ideas and feedback by all who attended, the event was a huge success.
