The Junction Creek Stewardship Committee conducts surveys to monitor invasive species in the Junction Creek watershed and collaborates with local community groups to assist in invasive species removal and management. We aim to gain a better understanding of the extent of their impact on our native ecosystems and develop effective management strategies to help conserve native biodiversity in Junction Creek.
You can help reduce invasive species in your watershed by planting native species in your gardens and yards, cleaning footwear and boats between use in different locations, learn how to identify invasive species, reporting sightings to the Ontario Invading Species Awareness Program, and volunteering at an invasive species removal event in your neighbourhood.
Invasive species that have been commonly found in the Junction Creek watershed include Japanese Knotweed, Himalayan Balsam, and Eurasian Watermilfoil.
