Invasive Weed Control

With summer bringing the community out into the gardens and parks, it's a great time to raise awareness of weeds and invasive plants, and the damages they can cause to the native environment.

Kitimat Leisure Services Department works in partnership with The Northwest Invasive Plant Council (NWIPC) to provide awareness, inventory, treatment and assessment.
