  6. Jane Kramer has been working on an art project for the past two years, photographing Michigan’s endangered plants and printing the images of their shadows on paper made from invasive plants. She has presented her methods and work across the state (schools, garden clubs etc.). She spoke at MSU’s science fair last week. If you ever need a lighter, more arty presentation at one of your cooperative meetings, she might be able to help. Michigan radio did a story on the project: https://www.michiganradio.org/post/michigan-photographer-turns-invasive-species-art You can see the work here: h

  8. IMPORTANT: For State of Michigan Employee e-mail, some alerts may be quarantined by Microsoft’s Threat Management e-mail scanner.

  9. Thanks for getting this started, Katie! Here's a template from the MISGP grants payable folks. IS Template.xlsx
  10. I thought this article was thought-provoking and wanted to share. There's value in others' past experiences and your past experiences can help others. In fact, this forum is a great tool to record and learn from the past! "Ford might have avoided such tragedies, and the ruinous management of the plantation, if he had sought counsel from specialists in caring for rubber trees or scholars of the Amazon’s capacity to thwart grandiose ventures. But he seemed to abhor learning from the past. 'History is bunk,' Ford told The New York Times in 1921. 'What difference does
  11. I attended this "extended partner meeting" and I think this is a great idea! I was particularly impressed with the pie-charts and other analytics that Nor put together using the data from the survey's. Nor, if possible, could you post some of the those graphics for example? All: Imagine conducting these surveys annually/bi-annually. Can we capture the impact of a CISMA?

  13. Thanks for posting, Vicki! I like this idea of sharing outreach materials so that we get more consistency in our messaging.

  15. Many of you have had questions when it comes to the rules associated with pesticide application. The attached map shows each district and the inspector's contact information. If you have questions related to pesticide use, these contacts should be a valuable resource. CISMA coordinators: I recommend reaching out to the inspectors covering your area, letting them know who you are, and what you and the CISMA are all about. Staying on contact with these folks makes your job and their job easier by making sure we're following all the rules. Pesticide districts.pdf
