Teach boaters how to prevent the spread!
Working or volunteering as a Lake Host is a fun way to get outdoors, meet others in your community, and help protect lakes from aquatic invasive species.

Lake Hosts work at boat ramps throughout the state inspecting boats for hitchhiking aquatic invasive species and teaching people about the Clean, Drain, & Dry method to keep invasive plants and animals out of our lakes.

Become a Lake Host and make a difference in your community! Just tell us where you’re interested in working or volunteering and we will help get you set-up—click here.
