On March 7, 2023, the Invasive Species Council of Metro Vancouver, in partnership with Stanley Park Ecology Society, organized a very successful Stewardship Series on Native Plants.  

We were so impressed to have 50 people in attendance at the zoom session. ISCMV was grateful to have the native plant expert, Michael Campbell, from NATS Nursery, on hand. Michael shared an introductory video and a tour video of NATS Nursery and aswered questions about native plants.

Public interest on the topic of native plants is definitely increasing!

In response to this growing interest, ISCMV, has built a new Native Species tab on our website. There you can find a list of retailers in Metro Vancouver that sell native plants. This list could be useful to those who wish to know where to source native plants for their own gardens. On the ISCMV website, we have also added a list of online resources about native plants. These resources include: brochures, plant lists, and searchable databases. 

We hope that these native plant resources on our website will help educate and inspire the public to replant native plants in the place of invasive plants.
