The goal of the Keweenaw Invasive Species Management Area (KISMA) is to facilitate cooperation and education among federal, state, tribal, local groups and landowners in prevention and management of invasive species across land ownership boundaries.
KISMA covers Houghton, Keweenaw and Baraga Counties as well as Ottawa National Forest.
Phragmites australis (common reed) is an #invasivespecies commonly seen along lakes, wetlands, beaches, roads and ditches. It can crowd out native vegetation, create large mono-cultures, impede roadside views and create dangerous areas for recreation. #phragmites #CISMA
