MI Paddle Stewards online training
July 27 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
Join local conservation professionals in Northwest Michigan to learn how you can contribute to our work while you are out paddling and playing on the water! Our events will include options for remote learning paired with three paddles on the water to practice what was learned online. You will learn how to identify and report invasive species while preventing their spread. Participants are encouraged to either complete the MI Paddle Stewards online training (linked below) or attend the virtual presentation hosted in the evening on July 27th via Zoom before joining one of the paddle events.
