The Together in Action (TIA) Awards, were launched in 2014 by the Invasive Species Council of BC (ISCBC) to recognize and celebrate the accomplishments of those going over and beyond their work in the field of invasive species management in BC. Every five years Milestone TIA (e.g. fifteenth anniversary in 2020) are presented at a gala event during the annual Forum. This years Forum will take place on February 11-13, 2020 in Richmond BC.
CKISS nominated two individuals who have gone above and beyond to help control invasive species in the Central Kootenay Region.
The nominations are….drum roll please…….

Thank you Terry for your bright spirit and loyal dedication.
