More Info: Discover Clean & Safe Boating

Learning about environmentally-sound boating practices is a key interest for recreational boaters, which is why in 2008 New York Sea Grant initiated a “Discover Clean & Safe Boating” project. This effort, which successfully debuted at the Boating Industries Association of Upstate New York show, has since become a model industry-partnered educational effort that has expanded from Great Lakes’ venues to sites statewide.

The Discover Clean & Safe Boating vessels, provided by New York State manufacturers and local dealers, drive annual companion programs emanating from their type (pontoon, cruiser, fishing, canoe). They are equipped with all legally-required and recommended equipment.

To help spread the word about the on-going campaign's efforts, NYSG's Recreation and Tourism Specialist Dave White regularly appears in TV segments, on air at various Central New York radio stations and is often quoted in local news stories and on blogs.

More Info: New York Sea Grant

New York Sea Grant (NYSG), a cooperative program of Cornell University and the State University of New York (SUNY), is one of 34 university-based programs under the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s National Sea Grant College Program.

Since 1971, NYSG has represented a statewide network of integrated research, education and extension services promoting coastal community economic vitality, environmental sustainability and citizen awareness and understanding about the State’s marine and Great Lakes resources.

Through NYSG’s efforts, the combined talents of university scientists and extension specialists help develop and transfer science-based information to many coastal user groups—businesses and industries, federal, state and local government decision-makers and agency managers, educators, the media and the interested public.

The program maintains Great Lakes offices at Cornell University, University at Buffalo, SUNY Oswego and the Wayne County Cooperative Extension office in Newark. In the State's marine waters, NYSG has offices at Stony Brook University in Long Island, Brooklyn College and Cornell Cooperative Extension in NYC and Elmsford and Kingston in the Hudson Valley.
