Southwest Corner Cluster

This dynamic group collaborates, combines, and coordinates their resources, knowledge, and experience in order to enhance capacity for: 1) natural areas stewardship through education, and 2) regional invasive species management. The SWCC facilitates field trips, seminars, and workshops provided by regional experts. Varied educational topics range from species identification to conservation planning, equipment use and maintenance to ecological restoration, and are offered throughout the year. The SWCC partners are dedicated to restoring native landscapes and waterways on all scales through invasive species management, native species enhancement, and monitoring, as well as regional invasive species detection, awareness, mapping, and treatment.

The Southwest Corner Cluster covers Berrien, Van Buren, Cass, St. Joseph, Kalamazoo, Barry, Calhoun and Branch Counties.
