GREENE COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - Greene County is leading the fight against invasive species in Indiana.

On Tuesday night, leaders put a new group in place at Shakamak State Park.

It's called CISMA.

That stands for Cooperative Invasive Species Management Area.

Invasive species are plants and wildlife that are not native to the area.

They include insects like the Emerald Ash Borer and plants like Kudzu.

The goal of this new group is to eliminate these threats before they harm the local ecosystems.
