North Country CISMA

Formed in 2015, our initial focus has been on inventorying the invasive species already in our 5 county area, and educating the public on the likely next invaders that we would like to keep out of the area. In addition, we are committed to removing hurdles that may discourage private property owners from treating invasive species on their own property. One of these initiatives is the establishment of community tool cribs at each of our participating Conservation District offices, with invasive species mechanical and chemical control equipment available for rent to the public. We are also working to obtain count-wide DEQ permits for chemical treatments of invasive species in wet environments. We are further facilitating private landowner's control of invasive species on their property by providing demonstrations of invasive species control techniques to neighborhood/lake associations.
