The goal of the Keweenaw Invasive Species Management Area (KISMA) is to facilitate cooperation and education among federal, state, tribal, local groups and landowners in prevention and management of invasive species across land ownership boundaries.
KISMA covers Houghton, Keweenaw and Baraga Counties as well as Ottawa National Forest.
Recently, DNR had sent out a bulletin regarding the finding of the invasive species "mile a minute". While the leaves have shriveled and the berries have turned brown, one identifying feature is it looks like dark brown tinsel. #invasivespecies #mileaminute #invasivepests
Huron Pines partnered with Black Lake Preservation Society in August to treat invasive purple loosestrife along roadsides around #BlackLake. Volunteers clipped and bagged flower heads and we followed with herbicide, targeting only the loosestrife and protecting #nativeplants.
