To download a Michigan Clean Boats, Clean Waters “train-the-trainer” schedule for spring and summer 2015,  click here

Clean Boats, Clean Waters volunteers can show boaters how to inspect their equipment, demonstrate cleaning techniques for boats and trailers and by sharing educational information about invasive species, volunteers can make a big difference in Michigan’s efforts to prevent the spread of AIS from one body of water to another. Through the Clean Boats, Clean Waters program, volunteers will organize and conduct a boater education program in their community. Adult and youth teams will educate boaters about where they are most likely to find invasive species on their recreational watercraft.
