The Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection wants to train people interested in volunteering their time to monitor boat launches for the presence of invasive plants and animals, such as zebra mussels.

According to the blog Green Outdoors, the training will educate volunteers on how to identify and detect invasive species and also to instruct boaters on how to do the same.  Volunteers will also be talking to boaters about ways they can prevent the spread of invasive species.  Volunteers will receive a handbook, supplies and a t-shirt that identifies them as volunteers.

The training session will be held Saturday, April 21, 2012 (10 am – 12:30 pm) at the Brookfield Library located at 182 Whisconier Road in Brookfield, Connecticut.
