The Columbia Shuswap Invasive Species Society is hosting a community weed pull at Martha Creek Provincial Park this Friday, August 12.

CSISS is partnering with the North Columbia Environmental Society, the Invasive Species Council of BC, and BC Parks in coordinating the weed pull.

Invasive species threaten our environment, society, and economy. Their control can be challenging and intimidating on both a small and large scale,” stated CSISS in a news release. “Fortunately, options for positive and effective community-based solutions can help control invasive species.”

Anyone who wants is welcome to join in at the day-use area in the park, located on Highway 23 North about 25 kilometres north of Revelstoke. The weed pull takes place on Friday, Aug. 12, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Gloves, tools and light refreshments will be provided.
