  1. Hi Alyssa, I'm hoping you've been connected with the European Frogbit Collaborative, but if not, please check it out and join our meeting next month! There is a decent amount of information on monitoring, treatment, etc. based on several years of work by various partners around the state.
  2. I posted previously that in 2020 we did a training for farmer's market managers in collaboration with MDARD. I am now working with MIFMA, the state's professional organization for farmer's market managers to get the word out to the entire state about invasive species that might show up at farmer's markets. If you have any interest on collaborating to develop some of these materials please let me know! I'll be setting up a virtual time to meet soon.
  3. I'm also interested in advice/learning about billboards from those who have done it!
  4. Here are two documents I'll reference during my part of the CISMA leadership breakout session. The Orientation document includes links to our CISMA's MOU and Bylaws, which can also be found on our website: https://oaklandinvasivespecies.org/join-cisma/ The Relevant Parties spreadsheet is an example of how to define the roles of Coordinator/Fiduciary/Partner Group etc. which can be especially helpful early on, or when changing to a new fiduciary.

  6. The Southeast Michigan/Saginaw Bay CISMA coordinators got together to create a calendar for focusing outreach efforts on 1-2 species each month. Our goal with this is to make a larger impact on social media and through other outreach by focusing on fewer species that we really want the public to keep an eye out for. Our hope is that if people see content on the same species from several different places, it will make more of an impact than just one CISMA posting about it. In addition, we are gathering links etc. on these species, as well as our field/survey knowledge, so that other coordinator
  7. Hi all, Has anyone been managing Porcelainberry? http://www.misin.msu.edu/facts/detail/?project=misin&id=193&cname=Porcelainberry We haven't yet, but are receiving more reports and might start looking into it more. It looks like from MISIN and iNaturalist reports it is mostly from Flint south. Thanks for any thoughts!
  8. Thanks, everyone, I just got a report/question about this plant as well in Oakland County!
  9. Thanks, Nor! At least one of the videos has now been posted (see below). It is also linked on our website: https://oaklandinvasivespecies.org/resources/#farmersmkt
  10. This is a helpful guide on native vs. invasive: https://www.fs.usda.gov/Internet/FSE_DOCUMENTS/fsbdev3_017307.pdf
  11. Hi @Benjamin VanDyke , we definitely have them in Oakland County. I suggest talking to Scott Tiegs at Oakland University who has worked on them. https://oakland.edu/biology/top-links/directory/tiegs We're not doing much at the moment, but I have heard that some property owners in Oakland County are working on it. The main thing I would recommend for people is to plant bare root stock so as not to transfer soil in between locations.
  12. @Emily Messick check out these posts in regards to our survey efforts this year!
