WHIP is a multi-partner co-op serving Lincoln, Oneida, and Vilas Counties in northern Wisconsin. 

WHIP is one of roughly 14 Cooperative Invasive Species Management Areas (CISMAs) across the state (there are many more nationwide), who work with partner groups to manage invasive species across jurisdictional boundaries.  Our CISMA serves Lincoln, Oneida, and Vilas Counties in north-central Wisconsin.  


WHIP is run by a Coordinator and a Steering Committee of representatives from our 16 Formal Partners, ranging from citizen groups to different levels of government agencies to environmental schools.  

WHIP's fiscal agent is Lumberjack RC&D Council, Inc.,  a multi-county, nonprofit in Northeastern WI with offices in Rhinelander.  The Lumberjack group strives to enhance area natural resources, promote a higher standard of living and improve the quality of life for area citizens by fostering partnerships between public and private sectors and strategically investing in area natural resources.  See more at www.lumberjackrcd.org !
