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.

My fabulous summer crew collecting cuttings to test protocols to clonally propagate lingering green ash without grafting on #EAB susceptible rootstock. Will allow us to make lots of replicates for tests & breeding. @usfs_nrs @MInvasives @DCNRnews @USDA_APHIS #treeresistance
