To fulfill our mission, we strive to create and support collaborative invasive species management among partners. We also strive to promote invasive species education and outreach, inventory and prevention, and control activities for organizations and private landowners. If you are a landowner or organization in need of a resource for learning about species, identifying a species and/or ways to combat those species, please contact us!

Partners show their support of the Central Michigan Cooperative Invasive Species Management Area (CM-CISMA) by signing a non-binding Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) stating that they will work together as a team to manage invasive species. Because invasive species know no boundaries, these relationships are important for effective management. Partnerships can also allow access to new sources of funding and increase implementation efficiency. Our partners include:

  • federal and state agencies
  • municipalities
  • tribes
  • nonprofit organizations
  • community organizations within our five counties
