June is Invasive Species Awareness Month / WDNR
Clean Boats, Clean Waters
Saturday, June 12 | 10 am – 11 am
Refresher basics and training at the landing
At the east landing/north end of Blake Lake /Bystrom Lane
Come kick off the boating season. Join us to learn more about preventing the spread of invasive species and the CBCW program as part of the WDNR “Drain Campaign”, a statewide initiative to make sure anglers know about Wisconsin’s invasive species laws. Anyone welcome! We will go over the basics of boat inspections and what is needed to talk to boaters about invasives. Supplies, ice packs and t-shirts will be available. Refreshments and treats provided. CBCW photos will be taken for local media.
The Clean Boats, Clean Waters (CBCW) watercraft inspection program is an opportunity to take a front line defense against the spread of invasives. With the growing concern over the spread of aquatic invasive species to Wisconsin’s lakes, many lake district members are looking for ways to get involved. Volunteers are trained to do easy boater education at the landings. Adults and youth teams talk to boaters on how and where invasive species are most likely to hitch a ride into lakes.
