The California State Parks’ Division of Boating and Waterways, California Coastal Commission’s Boating Clean & Green Program, California Department of Fish and Wildlife, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service are offering a FREE Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) Prevention Workshop in Sausalito on June 13.

AIS pose serious threats to water delivery systems, hydroelectric facilities, agriculture, boating, fishing, and the environment. Recreational activities, including boating and fishing, can spread AIS from infested waters to uninfested waters.Therefore, everyone accessing waters should take simple actions to avoid spreading AIS each time they leave a waterbody.

Participants in these workshops will gain an understanding of the impacts AIS have on the economy and environment, learn to recognize AIS in their region, and learn how to prevent spreading AIS by inspecting and cleaning equipment and watercraft.
