“If your property was impacted by the Elephant Hill wildfire, you may be noticing more weeds than usual this year or you may be seeing plants that could be invasive and need more information,” a release from TNRD said.

“The TNRD can help you identify invasive species and provide chemical, biological or mechanical weed control.”

For more information or to request invasive plant control, contact Mike Dedels, the coordintor of the Invasive Plant Management Committee, by phone at 250-377-6297 or email mdedels@tnrd.ca.
