Ontario Invasive Plant Council is a multi-sector, non-profit group committed to the collaboration of organizations and citizens in order to more effectively respond to the threat of invasive plants in Ontario.
Learn about Invasive Plants
Check out their website for coming events, resources, and loads of information about species such as that growing plague along roadsides and wetlands, Phragmites, and two relatively new invaders to our woodlands and natural areas, Dog Strangling Vine and Japanese Knotweed.
What to Grow instead
Learn also about plants still in our ornamental gardens that are becoming invaders of natural areas. Grow Me Instead will highlight those common garden invaders and their alternatives.
Help prevent the spread of invasive plants by being aware of which plants are the worst. Beware of those free gifts from friends and neighbours too. Learn which ones will take over your entire garden and the woodlot next door!
