Clean Boats, Clean Waters is a project designed to educate the general public and enlist their help in preventing the spread of aquatic invasive species (AIS). Volunteers attend a 3 hour training session to learn how to conduct watercraft inspections, attain general information about AIS, and pick-up the required equipment for inspections. As a volunteer, you spend time at public boat landings in Eau Claire, Chippewa, Dunn, Barron, and/or St. Croix counties working to educate boaters and stop the spread of AIS species.
