To fulfill our mission statement, we strive to create and support collaborative invasive species management among partners which include: federal and state agencies, municipalities, tribes, nonprofits, and community organizations within our 5 counties. Partners show their support of the CM-CISMA by signing a non-binding Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) stating that they will work with us as a team to manage invasive species. Because invasive species know no boundaries, these relationships are important for effective management. Partnerships can also allow access to new sources of funding and increase implementation efficiency.
Along with partners, we also strive to promote invasive species education and outreach, inventory and prevention, and control activities for organizations and private landowners.
