$2.2M to fight plants

The Thompson-Nicola region now has an extra $2.2 million to battle invasive species.

The province announced Saturday the investment into a three-year pilot project that looks to explore new ways to manage invasive plants in the region.

The aim of the project is to eradicate spotted knapweed and other invasive plants in the region.

The new funding marks a 150 per cent increase over the previous funding for invasive plant management in the Thompson-Nicola region

Part of the $2.2 million will go to support research at Thompson Rivers University, where new treatment methods are being developed.

The province says the multi-year funding commitment, as opposed to year-by-year funding in the past, allows for better long-term planning.
