The Saginaw Bay Cooperative Invasive Species Management Area (CISMA) exists to create and support collaborative invasive species management among federal and state agencies, municipalities, tribes, nonprofits, community organizations and private landowners within 6 counties in the Saginaw Bay Watershed. Partners show their support of the SB-CISMA by signing a non-binding partnership agreement form stating that they will work together as a team to manage invasive species within CISMA boundaries. Invasive plants extend across multiple ownerships and travel over the landscape. For this reason, collaboration and partnerships are essential for effective management. In addition, partnerships can access new sources of funding and increase implementation efficiency. This plan is intended to provide guidance to local government on methods for utilizing available resources and capital on the noxious weed problem regardless of political boundaries. The SB-CISMA promotes invasive species education and outreach, inventory and prevention, and control activities. The Saginaw Bay CISMA covers Arenac, Bay, Huron, Saginaw, Sanilac and Tuscola counties
