Huge Success at Prince George Weed Pull!

Huge Success at Prince George Weed Pull!

The NWIPC hosted a Community Weed Pull on June 14th at Carrie Jane Gray Park in Prince George. We had asked members from varying societies and clubs throughout the community hoping to get members of all ages to come out, create conversation around invasive plants, and help make the park a little greener. The event was a huge success with 15 large bags of Common Tansy and Himalayan Balsam removed from the park.

The Northwest Invasive Plant Council would like to give a special thanks to the Caledonia Ramblers Hiking Club, the David Douglas Botanical Garden Society, Spectrum Resource Group, Daryl Nolan from the Ministry of Transportaion and Infrastructure, Sarah Delphine representing the SPCA, and Joe Daniels representing the UNBC Medieval Club. The amazing individuals from these groups made this Community Weed Pull a special event highlighting that we truly do have a remarkable community; one that isn't afraid to get involved, get a little dirty, and protect the environment.
