Landscaping & Invasive Species Information

Invasive species are nonnative plants and animals that have been introduced, intentionally or unintentionally, from other countries or ecosystems and threaten Alberta’s ecosystems and biodiversity. When landscaping, we strongly recommend checking Alberta’s Invasive Species to ensure you are not inadvertently causing harm to Alberta’s biodiversity.

 

Boater Requirements

Boaters, keep your watercrafts clean, drained, and dry! The Alberta Government enacted changes to legislation that will help to protect our provincial water bodies from of the infestation of aquatic invasive species. When highway signage indicates that a watercraft inspection station is open, it is mandatory that all carriers of water-based vessels report to the onsite inspectors to have their water equipment checked for invasive species such as the zebra and quagga mussels.
