What is a cisma?
A cooperative invasive species management area (CISMA) is a partnership of groups and individuals that work to address the impacts of invasive species within a defined region. There are CISMAs throughout Michigan, and each one works to improve the diversity and quality of local native habitats.
About L2L CISMA
The Lake to Lake Cooperative Invasive Species Management Area (L2L CISMA) is a multi-agency and multi-community group created in 2008. We protect the Central Upper Peninsula, from Lake Michigan's shoreline to Lake Superior's. We aim to provide long-term protection to native habitats by reducing the threat from non-native and invasive species. We reduce the threat of invasive species by educating the public, surveying and researching invasions, planting native species, and by providing on-the-ground invasive plant removal techniques.
