We envision a Northern Michigan where native plants and wildlife thrive uninhibited by invasive species, enriching the quality of life. It is the mission of the Huron Heartland ISN (HHISN) to work collaboratively to prevent the introduction of invasive species and to raise awareness to ensure healthy ecosystems and engaged communities across Northern Michigan.
The top three goals of the HHISN are: 1. Manage invasive species populations in a manner that positively impacts native plant and wildlife communities across our service area. 2. Create and/or support an engaged public who is able to make informed decisions on invasive species management. 3. Effectively and efficiently sustain the operation of our ISN through streamlined processes.
The HHISN serves Otsego, Montmorency, Crawford, Oscoda, Roscommon, and Ogemaw counties. These six counties cover over 2 million acres of land made up of numerous inland lakes, portions of seven watersheds, and many acres of private and public lands.
