NAISMA is a network of public and private professional weed managers who are involved in implementing any phase of a county, municipal, district, state, provincial or federal noxious weed law. There are active state weed and roadside vegetation associations and societies devoted to weed science organizations. Other organizations focus on federal legislation and others are comprised of federal and state middle level managers.
Until NAISMA, there was no North American organization serving the educational, professional improvement, and networking needs of the on-the-ground, local vegetation or exotic plant manager.
NAISMA is comprised of county weed managers, and local area managers in the state, federal, and provincial land agencies such as the Forest Service, National Biological Survey, and the Bureau of Land Management.
By joining NAISMA, you gain access to a wealth of information and experience from people who manage noxious and exotic vegetation programs on a day-to-day basis.
In NAISMA, you become a part of a North American-wide network of people involved in preserving our natural resources from the threat of invasive noxious weeds and non-native exotic vegetation.
