Gulf Islands National Park Reserve Speaker - Feb 25

Plants & Mammals & Birds … Oh My!

Invasive species such as Himalayan blackberry, fallow deer, and non-migratory Canada geese have had devastating effects on the unique ecosystems of this region. Since 2003 Parks Canada has been restoring natural areas on several of the islands within Gulf Islands National Park Reserve.  Eight years later Parks Canada is closer to achieving the restoration goals for these islands by removing key threats so that native plants and animals can thrive with minimum human intervention.

So what does the future hold for the islands we know and love? Join Nicole Kroeker, ecosystem scientist, for a discussion on the interactions between native and introduced invasive species found on Anniversary Island, Eagle Island, and other islets in the park. Find out about the work being done in your backyard to help restore these unique areas. Light refreshments provided.
