KWWIP: Kosciusko Water & Woodland Invasive Partnership
Working to eliminate harmful invasive plant species on our land and in our water
A new local Invasive Species management group has been created as part of a statewide program to control the spread of harmful invasive plants on our land and in our water.
Cooperative Invasive Species Management Area, or CISMA
So what exactly is a CISMA? It’s a cooperative group which includes a broad cross-section of partners (landowners, natural resource managers, local government). Together the partners create a long-term commitment to the cooperation. The CISMA is led by a steering committee of key partner representatives and focuses on creating a comprehensive plan for Invasive Species management within the CISMA’s designated area. The CISMA also facilitates cooperation across jurisdictional and landownership boundaries.
Our new CISMA is called the Kosciusko Water & Woodland Invasive Partnership (KWWIP). We are currently seeking members, partners, and volunteers to get this important initiative underway!
