Invasive Plant Educational Resources

The TNIPMC offers a suite of resources specific to invasive plant management within the Thompson-Nicola Regional District. 


Contaminated hay is one of several pathways for movement of invasive plants throughout the Thompson-Nicola Region and beyond. Whether producing, selling or purchasing hay, there are simple actions you can take to help prevent the spread of invasive plants. This brochure offers tips on how to prevent invasive plant establishment and spread through contaminated hay.

Knotweed is a top 10 eradication species in British Columbia. Knotweed threatens biodiversity and disrupts the food chain by reducing available habitat and increasing soil erosion. The TNRD’s Japanese knotweed brochure offers information on how to identify, prevent introduction and spread, and manage existing knotweed infestations.
