Oakland County CISMA

In December 2014, 19 founding partners formed the Oakland County CISMA (OC CISMA). The formalized OC CISMA was born out of long-standing collaborative public-private work to manage invasive species in Oakland County, MI. Currently the OC CISMA has 34 member organizations. Since our founding, we have developed a strategic plan and treated hundreds of miles of road right-of-ways in partnership with the Road Commission for Oakland County. In partnership with cities, villages and townships we have developed ordinances to prevent the spread of invasive species and used matching funding to treat priority invasives such as non-native Phragmites, Japanese knotweed and swallow-worts. In 2018, additional funding from the Michigan Invasive Species Grant Program allowed the hiring of a full-time coordinator and a part-time technician to implement the work outlined by the strategic plan including additional surveys and outreach throughout the county.
