Play, Clean, Go: Invasive Species Action Week

Invasive species impact the places we live and play: The spotted lanternfly, which feeds on a wide variety of fruit trees, could devastate Canada's grape and wine industry, an almost $12 billion industry if it becomes established in Canada (CFIA).

Our beloved trails, parks and other recreational spots are being overrun by unwanted guests. Invasive pests, like the spotted lanternfly's egg masses, can travel with us on our camping gear, vehicles, and campers. Seeds of invasive plants, like garlic mustard, spread from trail to trail on our boots and clothes. Help stop invasive species in your tracks by sticking to trails, checking bike and ATV tires, and cleaning your boots, pets and clothes after a hike.
