With the growing concern over the introduction and spread of aquatic invasive species (AIS) to Oneida County’s waterbodies, many lake association members and other concerned citizens are looking for ways to protect the lakes they love. Since 2004, the Clean Boats, Clean Waters (CBCW) watercraft inspection program has been an opportunity for adults and youth to take a front-line defense against the spread of AIS!
Through the CBCW program, teams of volunteers, lake residents, and concerned citizens have attended CBCW workshops to learn how they can help prevent AIS from threatening our waters, why educational awareness is critical in preventing the spread of AIS, learned how to conduct watercraft inspections, and volunteered their time at local boat landings. The information and watercraft inspections that CBCW volunteers provide at the boat landings has been an integral part of protecting the lakes we love.
CBCW volunteers are the front line defense in Oneida County’s efforts to prevent the spread of AIS from one waterbody to the next please. If you would like to become a CBCW volunteer and/or to need CBCW training, pleases contact Stephanie Boismenue, Oneida County AIS Coordinator at 715-369-7835 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
