Help KISMA help you with invasive species concerns

Consider a donation to KISMA to support our continued efforts of controlling invasive species. Every bit helps with our goal of fostering healthy ecosystems.

KISMA provides education and outreach to property owners and managers to help identify and treat priority invasive species. To provide these services KISMA relies on funding from competitive grants and private donations. Funding is used for KISMA personnel, tools, field supplies, and mileage to and from sites for work in Keweenaw, Houghton, and Baraga counties. Your gift to KISMA would demonstrate your support to us and our granting agencies, as well as allowing our work to continue.
