CISMAs were first known as CWMAs, or Cooperative Weed Management Areas. Sometimes called Coalitions, Partnerships, or Councils, CISMAs are formed to collectively combat the problem of invasive species spreading across the landscape. CISMAs can vary greatly in their geographic range, activity level, and focus, and are usually comprised of representatives from various governmental agencies, non-profits, and concerned citizens or citizen groups (from SICIM).
Representatives from municipalities, parks departments, non-profits, businesses, advocacy organizations, and private landowners are working to form a CISMA in Hamilton County.
Where are we: Partners have had 4 meetings in 2019 and we have recently begun work on formulating our vision and mission. Any individual or representative who is interested in addressing invasive species in Hamilton County is invited to join us-- you do not have to be an expert. Fill out the sign up form to the right to get on the mailing list.
