please read for yourself and friends
Giant hogweed is an invasive non-native plant species that is invading streamside (riparian) areas throughout North America and Europe.
French Creek likely has the oldest population of giant hogweed in western Canada and it is considered the epicenter of invasion on southeastern Vancouver Island.
Giant hogweed plants can grow up to 5 m tall and produce up to 120,000 seeds upon flowering.
Giant hogweed is a human health hazard. Contact with sap in the presence of sunlight can cause skin blisters (contact dermatitis).
The Invasive Alien Plants Program (IAPP), a program of B.C. Ministry of Forests & Range, has developed a management strategy to manage giant hogweed in the French Creek watershed in association with landowners and interested groups.
