Clean Marina Pollution Prevention Wkshp

March 25, 2013, 8:30 am to 12:00 pm at the Tom Ridge Environmental Center – the program is free however, advanced registration is required. The registration deadline is March 22nd.

In a recent Pennsylvania Sea Grant survey, yacht clubs and marina operators indicated their interest in learning more about the following topics:

  • preventing and responding to spills
  • threats posed by falling water levels in the Great Lakes
  • the dredging process and required permitting
  • aquatic invasive species identification and prevention in Pennsylvania

PA Sea Grant responded by bringing together experts to shed light on these topics. This interactive program will provide the opportunity to ask questions and network over complimentary refreshments. Participants will take away a number of handouts and resources including materials on new dredging regulations, the application process, spill management and helpful links and resources.

To Register: e-mail your contact information and club or marina name (if appropriate) to Tom Cermak tjc29@psu.edu. You will receive directions, details, and registration confirmation.
