[Ann Arbor, Mich.] – It’s time to celebrate Michigan’s vast water resources and immensely popular boating opportunities. National Marina Day is Saturday, June 13, and provides potential new boaters and waterfront-lovers a chance to learn about recreational boating and visit a local marina. For local celebrations, consider visiting Michigan Clean Marinas. On Lake St. Clair, Bouvier Bridge Marina, MacRay Harbor and Sundog Marina have events planned. Additionally, several other marinas in Michigan are celebrating National Marina Day. Check out event details at www.nationalmarinaday.org.
Can’t make it to the water? Celebrate Michigan Boating Week by learning more about Clean Marinas. Certified Michigan Clean Marinas act to improve and maintain Michigan’s waterways by agreeing to reduce and eliminate releases and discharges of harmful pollutants, sediments, nutrients, general refuse, and anything else that can damage aquatic environments. Clean Marina operators and boaters have made the choice to do business in a way that is environmentally sound and business savvy. That’s worth celebrating.
