The Lake to Lake CISMA, formerly known as the Central Upper Peninsula CWMA (CUPCWMA) is a multi-agency and multi-community group, that aims to provide long-term protection of a variety of habitats by reducing the threat from non-native and invasive plant species through coordination of efforts among partners to educate the public, survey and research invasions, and provide opportunities for on-the-ground invasive plant removal and other management actions.
Lake to Lake CISMA covers Alger, Delta, Marquette, and Schoolcraft Counties as well as Hiawatha 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.
