Help #STOPTrackTragedies in your community this Rail Safety Week

By Sarah Mayes
Operation Lifesaver Canada and U.S.-based Operation Lifesaver, Inc. are joining forces to launch a new North American campaign this Rail Safety Week, September 23-29, 2018, called #STOPTrackTragedies.

For most of us, buckling up when driving and using sidewalks instead of walking down the centre of a road are automatic safety habits. But did you know there is another real – and potentially life-threatening – hazard to drivers and pedestrians?

Nature Conservancy of Canada asks Canadians to help stop the spread of invasive species through summer recreational activities

Nature Conservancy of Canada asks Canadians to help stop the spread of invasive species through summer recreational activities

The Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) hopes people are enjoying the outdoors and connecting with nature this summer, but at the same time is encouraging them to help control the spread of invasive species. 

Many invasive species have few natural predators to control them. Once they get into ecosystems, they’re often able to spread and out-compete our native plants and animals for space, water, food and other resources.

The not-for-profit, private land conservation group is highlighting 10 invasive species that can be spread as a result of people going about their summer outdoor recreation. Activities such as camping, hiking, biking, fishing, boating, horseback riding and driving ATVs can unintentionally spread invasive species into our rivers, streams and forests.
