Invasive Species Awareness Week is February 22-28, 2015

Invasive species threaten the health and biodiversity of Ontario’s ecosystems, including our lakes and forests. You might have heard of the Emerald Ash Borer, Asian Carp, and Eurasian Water-milfoil, but these are just a few of the hundreds of plants, insects and diseases that could effect how we enjoy our waterfront properties.

What can you do? There are many resources that can help you learn how to limit the introduction and spread of invasive species whether it’s in the city or on the lake.

Visit the following links from the FOCA website for more information:

FOCA’s Aquatic Invasive Plant Monitoring Program
