Aquatic Nuisance Species

For several years, the Friends of Lake Sakakawea has been involved in an effort to help educate the public about the dangers of Aquatic Nuisance Species.

We encourage the following steps:

Clean -- vegetation from boats and equipment
Drain -- water from livewells and bilge
Dry -- air dry or disinfect before next use

Do not dump bait in water, properly dispose or bury.

Pull the plug when transporting your boat.
