North Country CISMA

The North Country CISMA was formed in 2015 with the initial focus on inventorying the invasive species in their 5-county area, Mason, Lake, Missuakee, Osceola, and Wexford, and educating the public on the likely next invaders of the area. In 2016 Mecosta County was added to the NCCISMA, bringing the county coverage to 6.

They are a group of individuals and organizations that are committed to removing hurdles that may discourage private property owners on treating invasive species on their own property. One of these initiatives is providing assistance in identifying invasive species by coming to the property for a site visit. Another initiative is by providing a rewards program which gives the property owner cash for treating the high priority species on their property. The organization also provides mechanical and chemical control equipment available for rent from the participating Conservation Districts. They are also further facilitating private landowner's control of invasive species on their property by providing demonstrations of invasive species control techniques and presenting to groups about invasive species.
