Oakland County CISMA
CISMA = Cooperative Invasive Species Management Area
—PLEASE NOTE that most CISMA operations are currently suspended until state funding is reinstated. You can find some information by browsing our website or checking our Facebook page. We look forward to corresponding with you upon our return!—
We are a collaboration across Oakland County seeking to support functioning ecosystems and enhance quality of life through invasive species management. The Oakland County CISMA educates people about invasive species and works to prevent their spread. We respond to early detections of new species and manage long-term collaborative projects to control invasive species.
Invasive species are organisms that are not native to Michigan, and whose introduction causes harm, or is likely to cause harm to Michigan’s economy, environment, wildlife, or human health.
In Oakland County, invasive species can reduce property values, damage infrastructure, create public safety hazards, and degrade natural areas.
