Invasive Aquatic Plants

Invasive aquatic plants are plants from one part of the world that are transported, or migrate due to climate change, beyond their natural range and become established in a new area where they can cause potential harm to native ecosystems. 

Invasive plants are plants that do not occur naturally in B.C. The presence of invasive plants can cause environmental and/or economic harm, and some species can harm human health. They are extremely aggressive, reproduce rapidly, and often out-compete crops and native vegetation.
