In February, Alaska Clean Harbors and Cook Inletkeeper provided hundreds of boaters in Southcentral Alaska with clean boating kits and information on how they can help protect marinas and harbors around Alaska while boating. Over 200 people filled out a survey telling us about their boating and their opinions on pollution in Alaska’s harbors and marinas. You can see a summary of the results here.
Many of the boaters we talked with wanted more information on how to fuel their boats without drops or spills. Some points to keep in mind while fueling are posted on Cook Inletkeeper’s Clean Boating website:
We loved having the opportunity to talk to boaters from across the region about clean boating. We not only shared information, but we learned a lot from folks that we can share with others. Thanks to the Alaska Marine Dealers Association for putting on the event, and we look forward to next year! We provided an article in the 2012 AMDA newsletter. You can read our article, as well as one from the Seward Harbor and Advisory Committee member Terry Johnson from AK Sea Grant Marine Advisory Program: March2012 AMDA Newsletter.
