Connect with your community to tackle invasive species

Do you want to help tackle invasives in your community? Do you have questions about the most effective strategies to prevent the spread of invasives across the state?

Come learn about cooperative groups across the state that can help you with invasives management. Cooperative Invasive Species Management Associations, or CISMAs, are non-profit volunteer groups that monitor and respond to the spread of invasive plants, and share educational and other resources to help communities control invasives in their area.

We’ll hear from the natural resource professionals behind Vermont’s five CISMAs: Southeast, Upper Connecticut, Orleans County, Batten Kill, and Upper White River. We’ll learn about their ongoing projects throughout the state as well as effective management practices — from inspiring community involvement with Japanese Knotweed patches to planting native trees that can restore ecosystems.

Join in a conversation centered in our shared love for Vermont’s natural habitat and learn how to help preserve and rebuild our state’s vulnerable habitats.


This event is perfect for beginner to advanced learners on invasive species management.
