MI Paddle Stewards: Benton Harbor, Paw Paw River Water Trail
September 7 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
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.
