welcome the return of the nb invasive species council

In partnership with the New Brunswick Environmental Network (NBEN) and the Canadian Council of Invasive Species (CCIS), the NBALA has two official members on the New Brunswick Invasive Species Steering Committee to help strengthen provincial environmental policy around the spread of invasive plants and invasive species in New Brunswick waterways and lake ecosystems.

The New Brunswick Invasive Species Council (NBISC) is a collaborative initiative involving a number of agencies formed to address the lack of coordination and understanding associated with invasive species within the province of New Brunswick and across Canada. Their vision is to work together to ensure New Brunswick's environment, economy, and social interests are protected through the prevention, early detection, and education and awareness of invasive alien species. They fulfill this vision through best management practices in order to control and eradicate invasive alien species.
