The Canadian Council on Invasive Species (CCIS) is proud to have partnered with the Invasive Species Council of British Columbia, a CCIS Chapter, to create two activity books launched in the Fall of 2021, to engage and educate youth on preventing the spread of invasive species in their community’s.
These activity books promote actions related to preventing invasive species on landscapes and in waterways, and are the most recent resource additions to the CCIS’s PlayCleanGo and Clean Drain Dry take action campaigns, respectively. Previous to this project, CCIS worked with partners to create youth activity book and educator resources to prevent the spread of forest pests, related to the Buy Local Burn Local program.
This project was supported by TD Friends of the Environment Foundation.
Activity books are FREE to download and can be printed at home via the links below. If you require a higher resolution digital copy, please email email@example.com

National Invasive Species Playing Cards
With partners from across Canada, we have developed a bilingual National Invasive Species Playing Cards resource featuring facts and distribution information for 50 invasive plants, animals and diseases present and threatening Canada. The two joker cards feature behaviour change messaging including, “Play Clean Go”, “Clean Drain Dry”, “Buy Local Burn Local” and “Be Plant Wise”. Additionally, each card asks the user to report invasive species!
Cost: $6.00/deck + GST + shipping (from British Columbia)
