The City of Thunder Bay (Parks Division) and the EAB Task Force for northwestern Ontario have been working diligently to increase awareness of the Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) in Thunder Bay and surrounding areas. EAB has been detected south of Thunder Bay (Superior, Wisconsin) and in eastern Ontario (Sault Ste. Marie). To increase awareness of this invasive pest, the EAB Task Force launches an EAB Ribbon Campaign each year to draw attention to the urban ash trees that are at risk in the community. In addition, an EAB Management plan has been developed in preparation for the arrival of the beetle. The City of Thunder Bay is also working to increase awareness of invasive plants in the community. Through the EDRR program, local partners will come together to mobilize community volunteers and citizens to take action in the prevention, detection, and management of invasive species in Thunder Bay.
