Pervasive and Invasive Plants

Attacking prickly Multiflora Rose bushes and hacking out dense thickets of Japanese Knotweed takes a team of determined volunteers. Melanie Dobson, a member of the Williams Lake Conservation Company (WLCC) has been leading the campaign against these pervasive and invasive weeds along the Williams Lake Road and the Purcell’s Cove Road for many years. She is trying to stop the plants from spreading further into the Williams Lake watershed.
