Saginaw Bay CISMA

The Saginaw Bay CISMA exists to create and support collaborative invasive species management among federal and state agencies, municipalities, tribes, nonprofits, community organizations and private landowners within 15 counties in the Saginaw Bay Watershed. Partners show their support of the SB-CISMA by signing a non-binding Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) stating that they will work together as a team to manage invasive species on a watershed-wide basis. Invasive plants extend across multiple ownerships and travel over the landscape. For this reason, collaboration and partnerships are essential for effective management. In addition, partnerships can access new sources of funding and increase implementation efficiency. This plan is intended to provide guidance to local government on methods for utilizing available resources and capital on the noxious weed problem regardless of political boundaries. The SB- CISMA promotes invasive species education and outreach, inventory and prevention, and control activities.

The Saginaw Bay Cooperative Invasive Species Management Area covers Arenac, Bay, Clare, Genesee, Gladwin, Gratiot, Huron, Isabella, Lapeer, Livingston, Midland, Saginaw, Sanilac, Shiawassee and Tuscola Counties.
