This section provides links to more information and resources to help you combat the invaders.
Cooperative Invasive Species Management Area (CISMA)
CISMA was created by the Sudbury-Assabet-Concord River (SuAsCo) Watershed Community Council. It is made up of federal, state, and municipal agencies, conservation organizations, and private individuals that have been meeting over the past few years to coordinate invasive species management on a watershed-wide basis. By working together to identify and control invasives, they strive to create more effective solutions through shared resources and information. Find out more from the CISMA website and the CISMA Informational Brochure (PDF).

Prohibited Plant List
In an effort to decrease the spread and possible introduction of invasive plants, Massachusetts passed the Prohibited Plants List. Effective since 2009, it is a ban on the trading, selling, and importing certain invasive plants. More information about the ban can be found on the Massachusetts Prohibited Plant List page.
