The Charlevoix, Antrim, Kalkaska, and Emmet Cooperative Invasive Species Management Area was established in 2015 as a joint effort between local conservation districts and various non-profits. Our mission is to protect the natural resources, economy, and human health of Northern Lower Michigan through collaborative outreach and management of invasive species. 

CAKE CISMA is one of twenty-two CISMA located throughout the state of Michigan. If you don't live in our service area, you can find your local CISMA by clicking here. CAKE CISMA works directly with 30+ partners and members of local environmental organizations who sit on our steering committee. We are currently funded through grants from the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (GLRI), the Michigan Invasive Species Grant Program (MISGP), Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa Indians, as well as a few local grants and private donations.
