Native and Invasive Plants
lnvasive species are an ecological and economic threat, especially to a resource-based economy like British Columbia's. The Municipality treats invasive species on a priority basis so the plants do not pose a hazard to our residents, pets, and local wildlife.

Native Plant / Drought Tolerant Gardening
Native plants are those that can be traditionally found in a specifc region and have not been introduced through recent horticultural activity. Native plants have adapted to their climate and hardiness zone over thousands of years and can therefore be relatively maintenance free once they are established !
