Preventing the Spread of Invasive Species in Wisconsin
"Clean Boats Clean Waters” volunteers and Department of Natural Resources staff will be at boat launches throughout the state during the July 4th weekend helping boaters inspect their boats and showing the necessary steps to slow the spread of aquatic invasive species.  The sixth annual "Landing Blitz" aims to educate and reward boaters for taking steps in preventing the spread of invasive species such as zebra mussels and Eurasian water-milfoil.  Boaters spotted already practicing the important prevention steps might be rewarded with a free "Stop Aquatic Hitchhikers" towels.  For more information on preventing the spread of invasive species and boating regulations, click here.
