EDRR: Early Detection Rapid Response
The most effective ways to manage invasive species include prevention and early detection rapid response for new priority invaders.
Local governments of CRISP are working together and with partners to address high risk invasive species including Knotweed, Giant Hogweed and European Fire Ants.
We provide the public with assistance and information on these and other priority species.

CRISP collaborates with other regional and provincial partners including the Invasive Species Council of BC (ISCBC), regional invasive organizations, major land managers in the Capital Region and other key partners, such as provincial agencies.
