Join the fight against invasive plant species – attend an Invasive Weed Pull event to learn how to identify and remove invasive plant species from Lethbridge’s natural areas! 

Invasive Weed Pull events help to protect the natural biodiversity of our region. We encourage our community to participate so we can effectively deploy an ‘Early Detection, Rapid Response’ for prohibited noxious weeds in our river valley. Specifically, Invasive Weed Pull events target spotted knapweed and diffuse knapweed.
