Cooperative Invasive Species Management Areas

Cooperative Invasive Species Management Areas (CISMAs), are groups of non-profit and government agencies, businesses and volunteers that have come together to tackle the issue of invasive species in their regions.

The North Country CISMA was formed in 2015 with the initial focus on inventorying the invasive species in their 5-county area, Mason, Lake, Missuakee, Osceola, and Wexford, and educating the public on the likely next invaders of the area. In 2016 Mecosta County was added to the NCCISMA, bringing the county coverage to 6.

By partnering with the North Country CISMA, the Hamlin Lake Preservation Society is committed to help remove hurdles that may discourage private property owners on treating invasive species on their own property.
