The Cooperative Invasive Species Management Area (CISMA). Barry, Calhoun & Kalamazoo (BCK) Counties are in a statewide effort for more effective management of and education about invasive plants and animals through regional community-based collaborations. Thanks to a recent grant award from the Michigan Invasive Species Grant Program and support from the MDNR, this three county CISMA is possible.


The grant holder, Barry Conservation District, will house a CISMA  invasive strike team to survey, prioritize, and treat the invasive speceis outbreaks of greatest concern. Education is free of charge and participation in the CISMA management plan is open to the public.


If you would like to join statewide efforts of the CISMA, have an educator give a workshop to your group, or learn more, please contact the Barry Conservation District.


For more information about this and other CISMA's, or to report sightings of invasive species, please visit www.michiganinvasives.org
