The Elephant Hill Wildfire Invasive Plant Program was a three year program funded by the Canadian Red Cross. The purpose of the program was to mitigate impacts of invasive plants resulting from the 2017 Elephant Hill Wildfire.
From 2019 to 2021, the TNRD partnered with Provincial and Municipal governments, First Nations and private land owners to carry out invasive plant management on Crown and private land. In summary, over 900 hectares of impacted private lands were seeded to help mitigate invasive plant establishment and over 915 sites containing numerous invasive plant infestations were managed.
This very successful program helped limit the spread of invasive plants onto newly disturbed areas, mitigate impact of invasive plants to landholders and identify new infestations.
