Terrestrial invasive species are easily spread from one location to another when they become stuck to shoes, tires, pets, and more. Plants, seeds, and insects can establish in new locations if they are not removed before leaving the region in which they were picked up.
PlayCleanGo is an initiative that encourages people to get outside and enjoy nature while protecting our natural resources, by preventing the spread of terrestrial invasive species through behavioural changes.
Remove any insects, mud or plants from your gear, boots and pets; Check ATV and bike tires, and remove any plants that may be caught in your equipment before moving to a new trail; Clean your gear and boots before entering and leaving a recreation site; Stay on designated trails and roads; and Learn how to identify invasive species.
