In December 2014, 19 founding partners formed the Oakland County CISMA. The formalized OC CISMA was born out of long-standing collaborative public-private work to manage invasive species in Oakland County, MI. In 2015 – 2017 the OC CISMA will be partnering with The Stewardship Network to implement an MISGP grant which focuses on management of state-priority invasives, the development of a long-term strategic plan, community education and outreach, and on-boarding of a part-time coordinator to support continued, invasive species management work in Oakland County, and future, integrated regional collaboration.
Which of the following is the invasive #JapaneseKnotweed? Do you have Knotweed at your house? Many Michigan Conservation Districts have an injector you can use to kill the plant!! Want to get better at identifying this invasive? Head to @MidwestInvasive or https://t.co/skyWoB9Kww
The latest #invasivespecies #EAB map by @USDA_APHIS shows 35 states and 5 provinces with confirmed catches of this #foresthealth threat. Look for D-shaped holes on ash trees. Woodpeckers will flake off bark in search of larvae, resulting in a "blonding" effect on the trunk.
