Check out CISMAs working in southern Indiana and across the state by browsing the table below.  If you don't see a CISMA listed for your county, try our County Resources Page for other contacts, or contact a member of our Indiana Invasives Initiative to start one! 

WHAT IS A CWMA OR CISMA?

CISMAs were first known as CWMAs, or Cooperative Weed Management Areas.  They first became popular in the western US, but over the past decade have become more widespread in the eastern states, including the Midwest.  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.  They might cover a single county, or stretch over multiple counties.  CISMAs have been shown to very effectively target invasive species problems by engaging local interests and addressing invasive issues across various land ownerships.
