Cooperative Invasive Species Management Areas

FISP facilitates the formation of Cooperative Invasive Species Management Areas (CISMAs). CISMAs are an alliance of stakeholders addressing invasive species management in geographic regions within Florida. With support from our statewide, multi-agency partnership, FISP is able to provide additional levels of support for each CISMA including CISMA communication and education forums through monthly webinars and an annual CISMA meeting at the Florida Exotic Pest Plant Councils' Symposium.


Partnering across the landscape! CISMAs are working in Florida to:

» Expand efforts across the landscape, rather than stopping at political or
   property boundaries.

» Form a partnership of federal, state, and local government agencies, tribes,
   individuals and various interested groups that manage noxious weeds or
   invasive plants in a defined area.

» Address the following concerns:
