A local group wants to talk to you about knotweed.
The Central Kootenay Invasive Species Society is hosting a free presentation Oct. 21 from 1 to 3 p.m. in Nelson.
Education program co-ordinator Laurie Frankcom says knotweed is a big problem in BC: it grows fast and causes significant environmental and economic damage.
But Frankcom says knotweed can’t be controlled mechanically. It has to be tackled with a herbicide, and they recommend hiring an experienced contractor.
The presentation at the Nelson Chamber of Commerce is free but they’d like you to sign up online.
