Invasive Plant Removal & Disposal In Nanaimo

May is Invasive Plant Awareness Month in the City of Nanaimo. This is the fifth year the City has held this special month to raise awareness of invasive plants and their effects on our parks and natural areas. 

The month-long event will feature Broombusters and other invasive plant removal work parties, including a BBQ at Pipers Lagoon Friday, May 5th. Residents can drop off invasive plants they have removed from their property to the Drop Zone at Bowen Park on April 23 and May 27 (11am - 3pm). 

If you are able to participate in any of the work parties throughout Invasive Plant Month please register through the City website or by calling 250-756-5200.

Thank you for helping us maintain our natural areas and restoring the integrity of our native ecology.

Drop off your invasive plants - April 23 & May 27

Residents can drop off invasive plants they have removed from their property at the Drop Zone located at the Wall Street entrance of Bowen Park from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm on Sunday, April 23 and Saturday, May 27.

Improper disposal of garden waste in our parks increases the likelihood of spreading invasive plants. Residents can dispose of garden waste at the regional landfill (1105 Cedar Road) 
compost it or bring to the two drop zones at Bowen Park, April 23 and May 27 from 11am-3pm.
