Wildfire Invasive Plant Program

In 2018, the TNRD obtained funding through the Canadian Red Cross to limit the spread of invasive plants within the 2017 Elephant Hill Wildfire area. This funding supports the following, and is available until the end of 2021:

  • Invasive plant education and outreach
  • Post-fire seeding for weed prevention
  • Invasive plant control on private lands and highways

Private land owners within Elephant Hill wildfire area can request free support for invasive plant management on their property by filling out the form below.
