Last weekend we wrapped up another successful season of courtesy boat inspections. From May 27th through October 15th, our paid staff and volunteers conducted 2,584 inspections during 1,849 hours! This year’s team of 10 volunteers made a big impact, volunteering 183 hours throughout the season. Although it is rare for our inspectors to find an invasive species on a boat or trailer (none were found this season), all it takes is one fragment to start an infestation and ruin a lake, and we never know when that will be – so every hour makes a difference!
Thank you volunteers!
