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.
