Great Lakes Clean Boat Initiative
Progress Report - February 2008
(printer-friendly PDF, 56 Kb)


  • The Great Lakes Regional Collaboration Executive Committee Sub-committee has proposed that U.S. Sea Grant representatives lead regional efforts on the Clean Boats Initiative. An initial conference call with GLRC partners, Sea Grant staff and other interested parties will be held in coming weeks to clarify the workplan and timeline moving forward.
  • An informal steering group will be established that will coordinate efforts to establish a compendium of existing boater education and outreach materials. It is possible that the steering group will coordinate with the existing database hosted by Portland State University (http://www.clr.pdx.edu/projects/edoutreach/content/browse.php)
  • Steering group members will also select a date or dates for Clean Boat Day to be held during the 2008 boating season. It is possible that Clean Boat Day will be held in conjunction with, or promoted along with, the GLRC Rapid Response mock exercise.
