Aquatic invasive species
Our volunteers help prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species by conducting boater education programs in their communities. Volunteers share information with boaters and the general public on aquatic invasive species and how they're spread. They also show boaters where invasives are most likely to hitch a ride on their watercraft and encourage them to check their watercraft and equipment for invasive species before entering the water.
