About Us

The Lillooet Regional Invasive Species Society (or LRISS for short) was incorporated as a non-profit society on April 18, 2011. LRISS has an open and free membership that includes the general public, St’át’imc First Nations, local, regional and provincial governments, public and private land managers.


LRISS creates partnerships, delivers education, surveys watersheds and removes invasives to protect social, cultural, environmental and economic values in the Lillooet region.

LRISS employs an Executive Director to implement our program activities. We have an Assistant to the ED & seasonal staff to assist with our field and outreach program in the summer months.  Currently Jacquie Rasmussen is our Executive Director.

LRISS is one of 17 Regional Invasive plant or species committees in the province. We are region number 5 in the map below. Our boundaries were created using the northern St'át'imc territory and the Squamish Lillooet Regional District Areas A & B.
