Boaters who stop at aquatic invasive species check stations this year will be eligible to win outdoor equipment and trips through the Wyoming AIS Boater Appreciation Raffle. Boat inspections are the first line of defense for preventing the spread of many aquatic invasive species, and the raffle acknowledges and thanks boaters for their important contribution to keeping Wyoming free of these harmful invaders.
Boaters receive a raffle entry each time their boat is inspected at any Wyoming Game and Fish Department check station. Each inspection receipt will include a unique raffle number which must be entered into the Game and Fish’s website for the boater to be eligible for the raffle. Winners will be randomly selected
Prizes have been donated by outdoor businesses that share a concern for the future of Wyoming’s waters, including Marine Products, The Reef Fly Shop, Citimarine, West Laramie Fly Store and Buckboard Marina.
“Aquatic invasive species are a serious threat to fishing and boating in Wyoming. Boaters help our efforts to keep invasive species out of Wyoming waters,” said Josh Leonard, Game and Fish aquatic invasive species coordinator.
