TNRD sets up new weed committee

Thompson-Nicola Invasive Plant Management Committee created by Thompson-Nicola Regional District

Submitted

A new Thompson-Nicola Invasive Plant Management Committee (TNIPMC) has been created by the Thompson-Nicola Regional District to administer invasive plant management with the TNRD boundaries.

For the past 20 years, the Southern Interior Weed Management Committee (SIWMC), a non-profit society, has delivered invasive plant management on Crown land throughout the TNRD, operating in conjunction with a TNRD Invasive Plant Committee.

The functions and roles of the Southern Interior Weed Management Committee (SIWMC) and TNRD Invasive Plant Committee and their programs have been merged into the new TNIPMC.

The SIWMC is in the process of dissolution, and the original TNRD Invasive Plant Committee has been dissolved upon creation of the TNIPMC.

The membership of the TNIPMC includes representatives from major land managers in the TNRD as well as key organizations.
