Keweenaw Invasive Species Management Area (KISMA)

Beaver pond near Gratiot Lake, where KISMA has been removing European marsh thistle (Cirsium palustre) for four years with great results

Our goal is fostering healthy ecosystems


Beaver pond near Gratiot Lake, where KISMA has been removing European marsh thistle (Cirsium palustre) for four years with great results.

KISMA provides education and outreach to property owners and managers to help identify and treat priority invasive species. Invasive species are not native to the ecosystem in question and are likely to harm the environment, economy, or human health.

KISMA works in Baraga, Houghton, and Keweenaw Counties.
