The Three Shores CISMA is a partnership of city, county, state, federal, and tribal officials who have joined together with local citizens, landowners, and not-for-profit groups to manage invasive species throughout Chippewa, Luce, and Mackinac Counties.

Cooperative Invasive Species Management Areas (or CISMA's) have many benefits, among them are:  they build community awareness and participation; they reduce the risk of control efforts to water and rare species by assuring that partners employ Best Management Practices; they provide an early detection and rapid response network; and help secure funding.  CISMA activities include:  education and awareness; prevention; monitoring; and integrated pest management.

In 2015 the Three Shores CISMA expanded and formally changed their name from the Eastern Upper Peninsula Cooperative Weed Management Area (EUP CWMA) to the Three Shores CISMA. Also while expanding, Three Shores grew to include 41 partner organizations and have increased  their funding opportunities to expand its efforts throughout the Chippewa, Luce, and Mackinac counties. 

The Chippewa Luce Mackinac Conservation District is a founding partner of the Three Shores CISMA and has been its fiduciary since the beginning. CLMCD is proud to partner with Three Shores to cooperatively combat Invasive Species.
