Mobile quagga and zebra mussel prevention trailer takes to the road

June 30, 2016 – Peachland View

The Okanagan and Similkameen Invasive Species Society (OASISS) is taking to the road in their newly constructed, educational, trailer.

This highly visual addition to the existing aquatic invaders prevention program was made possible by the RDOS, who received a generous grant from the Royal Bank of Canada through the RBC Blue Water Project Fund. “The RDOS appreciates that the Royal Bank could see the benefits of providing funding for a potentially devastating threat to our waterways – before it gets here. They recognize the astronomical cost implications and impact to our environment which will affect all residents and visitors to the Okanagan, if quagga or zebra mussels arrive,” said Mark Pendergraft, Chair of the RDOS.
