Two free Clean Boats, Clean Waters (CBCW) workshops, hosted by the Oneida County Land and Water Department and the University of Wisconsin‐Extension, and sponsored by the Wisconsin Lakes Partnership are being planned for in May.
The CBCW program provides an opportunity to learn how and why educational awareness is critical in preventing the spread of aquatic invasive species (AIS).
The workshops will have speakers from multiple resource agencies. Participants will receive information on AIS along with species identification, instructions on how to organize an effective volunteer watercraft inspection program and practice with conducting boater interviews. A CBCW water inspection handbook and kit, containing all the tools an inspector needs will be available at the workshop. Seating at both is limited so register soon.
On Thursday, May 2, 5-7 p.m., join the Oneida County AIS Team at the Rhinelander Airport, 3375 Airport Rd., Rhinelander. This workshop will be a refresher course for CBCW participants. New volunteers are welcome as well! Beverages and a snack will be provided.
On May 21, 9-12 p.m., the CBCW workshop will be held on Tuesday, May 21, at the Minocqua Community Center, 415 Menominee St., Minocqua. The workshop will be geared towards new CBCW participants. Coffee and doughnuts will be provided.
