MI Paddle Stewards: Benton Harbor, Paw Paw River Water Trail

September 7, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

MI Paddle Stewards logo

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 any invasive species spotted while paddling a water trail, and how to clean your crafts to avoid giving invaders a free ride. As a new ecosystem ambassador, you’ll be encouraged to pass your knowledge to other paddlers and seek out other volunteer opportunities to help keep your local water trails clean and healthy.

This workshop includes lunch and a paddling experience (with kayaks and gear provided by Michigan Sea Grant) on a nearby water trail! Participation is free thanks to funding from the Michigan Invasive Species Grant Program (www.michigan.gov/invasives). Find more detailed information about the workshop on the event’s registration page.
