• Cooperative Invasive Species Management Areas (CISMAs) are partnerships of groups and individuals that work to address invasive species impacts on the environment, economy and human health within a defined region. By collaborating across jurisdictional boundaries, CISMAs work to leverage resources and overcome challenges associated with the prevention, early detection, response and control of invasive species. Each CISMA is governed by a steering committee and priorities identified within a strategic plan.

    Contact your local CISMA if you have questions about invasive species or if you are interested in becoming involved in efforts to prevent and control invasive species in your community.
