WHO ARE DOCKWALKERS?
Dockwalkers are volunteers who inspire and educate boaters and other recreators to be environmentally sound while boating in Alaska. These volunteers distribute boater kits with educational materials while visiting marinas, boat launch ramps, boat shows and events.
HOW DO DOCKWALKERS HELP?
The efforts of Dockwalkers increase boater awareness about clean boating, thus improving the recreation experience in Alaska while helping to preserve its precious wildlife habitat and water quality.
HOW DO I BECOME A DOCKWALKER?
People interested in becoming Dockwalkers are required to attend a free 1.5 hour training class. The training provides an overview of environmentally-sound boating practices, information about how to conduct Dockwalking, educational materials that Dockwalkers will distribute including boater kits. Training in Seward will be at 5:30 PM, on the 29th of April at the new library.
