Fox Valley Cooperative Invasive Species Management Area (CISMA)
A Cooperative Invasive Species Management Area (CISMA) is a partnership between organizations, governments, and individuals to manage invasive species. CISMAs complete collaborative projects that can include education programs and invasive species mapping, control, and eradication.
Golden Sands is bringing partners together for a visionary meeting to create a CISMA that will serve Waupaca, Outagamie, and Winnebago counties.
Fox Valley Cooperative Invasive Species Group Visioning Meeting
Are you a landowner, conservation professional, government employee, or just someone who cares about Wisconsin’s natural resources? Are you interested in protecting native species while preventing the spread of harmful invasive ones? Join us in a community-wide visioning and planning session to develop a CISMA in the Fox Valley!
The effort is being spearheaded by Golden Sands Resource Conservation and Development Council, Inc. (RC&D) and UW-Oshkosh. Golden Sands RC&D recently developed a CISMA called the Central Wisconsin Invasives Partnership to serve seven counties in the central part of the state. Waupaca, Outagamie, and Winnebago counties have no such group. Developing a CISMA in the Fox Valley would broaden and strengthen invasive species management efforts through expanded partnership and collaboration. Golden Sands RC&D and UW-Oshkosh are excited to invite you to join us for an important meeting in the formation of this group. See the meeting agenda here.
The meeting will be held on Thursday, December 12th, 2019 from 12:45pm to 3:30pm in the Great Room of the Mosquito Hill Nature Center, N3880 Rogers Rd, New London, WI 54961.
