CBCW INSPECTION WORKSHOP (to be determined)

The Oconto County Land Conservation Division is hosting a Clean Boats, Clean Waters (CBCW) training.  The workshop will be held at the Crooked Lake Community Center, 15545 County Highway W, Crivitz, WI, on a date to be posted in the near future (the date needed to be changed because there is a conflict).

Interested in a rewarding volunteer opportunity this summer? Join Amanda Strick, Aquatic Invasive Species Coordinator and current Clean Boats, Clean Waters volunteers and learn to conduct boater education interviews at local boat launches.  As a volunteer, you will show boaters how and where aquatic invasive species (AIS) are most likely to hitch a ride on their watercraft and be transferred to other water bodies.  Volunteers also perform boat/trailer checks for AIS, distribute informational brochures, and collect and report any new AIS infestations.  All ages are welcome to participate. For questions, please contact Amanda Strick, Oconto County AIS Coordinator, at 920-834-7155 or amanda.strick@co.oconto.wi.us.  For more information on the CBCW program, visit http://www4.uwsp.edu/cnr/uwexlakes/cbcw/
