Northwest Indiana Cooperative Weed Management Area
The purpose of NICWMA is to:
  • Teach landowners, students, professionals and others how to identify invasive plants
  • Equip private landowners, public landmanagers, and environmental contractors with techniques for eradication of invasives
  • Inform nurseries of invasives they may be selling
  • Foster early detection and rapid response to new infestations of invasive species
  • Inform public of cost-share programs available to landowners

Though there are many invasive species established in northwest Indiana, NICWMA has chosen to focus its efforts on the following:

  • Asian Bittersweet
  • Bush Honeysuckle
  • Purple Loosestrife
  • Phragmites
  • Tree of Heaven
