The Lake to Lake CISMA, formerly known as the Central Upper Peninsula CWMA (CUPCWMA) is a multi-agency and multi-community group, that aims to provide long-term protection of a variety of habitats by reducing the threat from non-native and invasive plant species through coordination of efforts among partners to educate the public, survey and research invasions, and provide opportunities for on-the-ground invasive plant removal and other management actions.
Lake to Lake CISMA covers Alger, Delta, Marquette, and Schoolcraft Counties as well as Hiawatha 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
