About the event

Have you seen herbicide use signs around town, been part of a weed pull, or seen goats grazing downtown? Then you might have an idea of what's up around town... 

If not, join EKISC, Regional District of East Kootenay, City of Fernie, Vahana Goats, and West Fork resource Management for a community event to learn and ask questions about what we are doing to manage invasive weeds in the city of Fernie.
