WGFD Offers Watercraft Inspection and Decontamination Training

04/23/2012

CHEYENNE - The Wyoming Game and Fish Department will once again be offering watercraft and equipment inspection and decontamination training for Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) during May and June at various locations around the state.

The trainings are free and open to anyone interested in learning more about aquatic invasive species and becoming certified in watercraft inspections. This training will provide the skills necessary to inspect and decontaminate watercraft that may be transporting AIS into Wyoming. The training includes information on basic biology, impacts, transport vectors, and distribution of AIS. It includes classroom instruction, a question and answer session, and a hands-on watercraft inspection and decontamination exercise.

Trainings are being offered as a one-day course (9 a.m.-4 p.m.) or a two-night course (5:30p.m.-8:30p.m.)
