WASHINGTON – The Marine Environmental Education Foundation kicked off its 2004 National Clean Boating Campaign June 12 by participating in the seventh-annual River Day celebration of the Clinton River, its watershed and Lake St. Clair in Michigan, MEEF said in a press release yesterday.
The foundation hosted a Dockwalkers program as part of the event, which is an educational outreach effort designed to introduce boaters, marina users and the general public to the concepts of clean boating. The National Clean Boating Campaign is a year-round initiative that promotes good stewardship of water resources by boaters, marina operators, boat dealers and boating industry manufacturers.
“This year the Campaign is proud to announce its participation in regional clean boating celebrations throughout the country, such as the recent successful River Day festivities in Michigan’s Macomb and Oakland counties,” said David G. White, MEEF president. “Such regional events offer the NCBC an opportunity to connect with boating enthusiasts across the nation.”
