The Northwest Michigan Invasive Species Network (ISN) works directly with partners in Benzie, Grand Traverse, Leelanau, and Manistee counties to "protect, enhance, and promote Northwest Michigan’s natural communities through terrestrial invasive plant management and outreach." Top-priority plants in the region include garlic mustard, Japanese knotweed, invasive phragmites, and Oriental bittersweet. We are currently funded by a grant from the Michigan Invasive Species Grant Project (MSIGP).
