Tune in to learn about the important invasive species work we do in Oakland County, our day-to-day working realities as a CISMA (Cooperative Invasive Species Management Area), and the unique challenges of ecosystems like ours. We’ll talk about how we work across regional partners to increase our impact, highlight some of the species we wrestle with most often here in our part of Michigan, and how we engage our community to stop their spread.
