Become an ally in the fight against aquatic invasive species! Paddlers 18 years and older are invited to join Michigan Sea Grant and partners for a one-day volunteer program about protecting water trails from aquatic invasive species (AIS).

You will learn how to detect and report aquatic invasive species spotted while paddling a water trail, and how to clean your crafts to avoid giving invaders a free ride. As a new paddle steward, you’ll be encouraged to pass your knowledge to other paddlers and seek out other volunteer opportunities to help keep Michigan’s water trails clean and healthy.

This workshop includes lunch and a paddling experience (a limited number of kayaks and gear provided by Michigan Sea Grant or bring your own) on a nearby water trail! Participation is free thanks to funding from the Michigan Invasive Species Grant Program (www.michigan.gov/invasives).
