  1. The Mid-Michigan CISMA has invasive species injectors available to local landowners in Clinton, Eaton, Ingham, and Ionia counties. These injectors are useful for local residents to treat small infestations of invasive Japanese, giant, and Bohemian knotweeds and are best used when knotweed is in bloom- August into September. The injectors will be available for four-day rental sessions with a refundable deposit and staff will train you to use the injection system. Attached is the program flyer and more information.

  5. Hi Bas, Thanks for reaching out! Unfortunately our Mid-Michigan CISMA doesn't have any positions open, but please email me at erin.jarvie@macd.org and I can forward any opportunities that appear on our CISMA radars. We also have volunteer opportunities with our CISMA and I think you'll find that the Lansing area has lots of natural resources networking opportunities as well. I hope you enjoy Michigan! -Erin Pavloski, Regional Invasive Species Coordinator, Mid-Michigan CISMA
