Owners and managers of marinas, boatyards, and yacht clubs are invited to attend a free seminar to learn about becoming certified Maryland Clean Marinas.
The program will provide details on commonly needed permits and plans, and an informative session on the impacts of plastic marine debris on Maryland’s waterways.
Seminars are scheduled:
- February 5th at Bush River Yacht Club, Abingdon
- February 7th at the Annapolis Recreation Center
- February 11th at Richardson Maritime Museum, Cambridge
All workshops will run from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and advanced registration is requested by contacting Program Coordinator Donna Morrow at firstname.lastname@example.org or 410-260-8773.
The Maryland Clean Marina Initiative recognizes and promotes environmentally-responsible marinas, boatyards, and yacht clubs. The program is coordinated by the Maryland Department of Natural Resources in partnership with the marine industry.
Certified Clean Marinas will enjoy cleaner water, cost savings, more responsible customers, and positive publicity.
There are currently 149 certified Maryland Clean Marinas and Partners, and dozens of other states have replicated Maryland’s program.
