CKISS year in review

A snapshot of our 2019 supporters & programs

What a year 2019 has been here at CKISS!  At the year draws to a close we find ourselves reflecting on the past year and those who support our organization.  We want to extend our deepest gratitude to all of our funders, whose contributions allowed us to accomplish so much during the 2019 field season. We have put together a photo album to highlight some of the work that was completed in 2019 due to their support!

Local Waterbodies remain free of invasive Zebra and Quagga Mussels in 2019

The Central Kootenay Invasive Species Society (CKISS) recently received some good news! From June through October 2019, CKISS staff conducted plankton and substrate sampling for zebra and quagga mussels (ZQM) within West and Central Kootenay waterbodies. We collected a total of 286 plankton samples from eight waterbodies in the region. The samples were sent to a provincial lab for analysis and the results are in; all the samples came back negative for free-swimming, microscopic ZQM larvae called veligers.
