It’s Invasive Species Awareness Week and the Manitoba government is continuing efforts to make the public aware of potential risks. “Manitobans can all play a part in protecting our province from invasive species, many of which can have significant ecological impacts on our province,” said Agriculture and Resource Development Minister Blaine Pedersen. “This week is about making sure Manitobans are aware of how invasive species can affect our environment, and what we can do to ensure we keep our waters and landscapes healthy.”
