Duck Hunters: Protect the Lakes You Love

Play Now Clean, Drain, Dry Your Boat

Invasive species like giant salvinia can grow quickly and cover expanses of fresh water, blocking access for hunters to prime waterfowl hunting areas. Invasive species can move to new lakes by hitching a ride on your boat, trailer or gear. Stop the spread and protect the lakes you love by always taking time to clean, drain and dry your boat, trailer and gear when you travel from lake to lake.
