Invasive Weed and Disturbance-caused Undesirable Plants List

An open space in the forest with a view of a narrow creek going into the mountains

A list of  invasive weed and disturbance-caused undesirable plants used by Cows and Fish staff to complete riparian health assessments and inventories (designed for use in Alberta). This list is a tool that landowners, resource managers, and communities can use in understanding riparian health assessments and examining their own riparian areas. Note that the same list can be found at the back of the Riparian Health Assessment Field Workbook.  Invasive plant species locally elevated by municipalities are not included in this list.
