Boaters, Anglers Can Help Stop Spread Of Invasive Species

Alexandria, Virginia — The BoatU.S. Foundation for Boating Safety and Clean Water has joined the Izaak Walton League of America’s campaign to help stop the spread of aquatic invasive species and is urging all recreational boaters who trailer their vessels to take the League’s “Clean Boats Challenge.”

The challenge is quiz at http://www.CleanBoats.org that educates boaters and anglers on how to inspect and clean their boats to ensure that lakes and streams are protected from non-native, aquatic hitchhikers.

“Taking the Clean Boats Challenge will give boaters and anglers the information they need to make personal choices that can help stop the spread of invasive species,” said BoatU.S. Foundation Director of Clean Water Programs Susan Shingledecker.”
