The Okanagan and Similkameen Invasive Species Society is hosting a free public forum on the threat of invasive mussels to B.C.
The society said the arrival of zebra or quagga mussels in the Okanagan would have disastrous impacts to our pocket books, the tourism industry, water supply systems, fisheries and our overall enjoyment of boating and water-based recreation.
While the B.C. government recently announced significant new measures to address the threat of invasive mussels to B.C. waterways, the society wants the public to know exactly what is at stake and what is required to prevent these unwanted invaders from expanding into B.C.
