Early detection is critical to stopping the spread of invasive species. You can help detect and locate new infestations and be part of the solution! If you see a plant that looks unfamiliar or ‘out of place’ or a creature you don’t recognize and have concerns about, we encourage you to report.
Here are several reporting options:
- Report-A-Weed – download one of the Province’s smartphone Report-A-Weed BC applications (download either the iPhone app or the Android app). (Please note that the Report-a-Weed apps can be used off-line as well; simply complete the report, click 'Submit' and the report will be sent as soon as you are back in cell coverage.) Your weed sightings will be reviewed by an invasive plant specialist for your area, who will coordinate follow-up activities with the appropriate local authorities
- Via the Reporting Page on the BC Inter-Ministry Invasive Species Working Group website

Invasive species tend to pop up in areas that we frequent, in local parks and gardens, or along roadsides and in ditches. Thank you for helping to report these species!
