Dockwalker Training Offered for “Green” Boaters In Newport Beach
Volunteers will Conduct Outreach on Clean Boating

SAN FRANCISCO – The Boating Clean & Green Program will train volunteers Saturday, March 21 to become “Dockwalkers,” individuals who promote environmentally-sound boating throughout California’s marina communities. The training will take place from 10 a.m. to 12:40 p.m. at the Newport Beach Council Chambers in Newport Beach.

A previous press release dated February 25, 2009 incorrectly stated the date of the training as March 19.

Dockwalkers will be trained to engage members of the public and the boating community in adopting clean boating practices. Once training is complete, these volunteers don their official “Dockwalker” hats and conduct face-to-face boater education while visiting marinas, boat launch ramps, boat shows and special events.
