Dr. Sigrid Resh is looking forward to the return of the school year, and seeing more students on campus. More importantly she cant wait to see all the students who will work with KISMA again this year, either as researchers or volunteers. KISMA works to manage invasive species and study how the best techniques for management work opposed to other forms. Invasive species management is vital to the ecosystem of the Keweenaw peninsula and much of the Upper Peninsula. And that is why KISMA focuses on finding invasive species and working with property owners, and partners to manage them, and replace them with native species in order to help the ecosystem start thriving again.
