Lakeshore Invasive Species Management Area
The Lakeshore Invasive Species Management Area (LISMA) is a broad-based coalition that promotes efficient and effective management of invasive plant and animal species throughout the four county region of Kewaunee, Manitowoc, Calumet, and Fond du Lac counties. The mission of LISMA is to educate the public and protect biodiversity and ecological function throughout the region. LISMA provides the opportunity for partners to share and leverage limited resources, raise awareness about invasive species problems, and collaboratively reduce the impact of invasive species on both public and private lands.
Glacierland RC&D serves as administrative coordinator for LISMA through grant funding from the USDA Forest Service
