Our work wouldn’t be possible without the dedicated volunteers across all of our programs. This month, we would like to thank the volunteers who are part of our Courtesy Boat Inspection program.
May through September this year, 11 volunteer Courtesy Boat Inspectors made a big impact at four boat launches, volunteering 174 hours to educate boaters about the threat of invasives, and inspect boats and trailers for hitchhiking plants and animals. Along with our paid staff, all of our inspectors conducted a total of 2,362 inspections this year! All it takes is one fragment to start an infestation and ruin a lake, so every inspection makes a difference.
