About Us

The Cooperative Invasive Species Management Area (CISMA) for Barry, Calhoun, and Kalamazoo (BCK) Counties are part of a statewide effort for more effective management of and education about invasive plants and animals through regional community-based collaborations. Thanks to a recent grant award from the Michigan Invasive Species Grant Program and support from the MDNR, this three county CISMA is possible.
