The Isaac Walton League engaged recreational boaters and anglers in stopping the spread of destructive aquatic, invasive species through a series of print ads and in-store displays that demonstrated the need to protect our waterways from aquatic invaders.  In addition, the outreach effort included a web-based contest that further educated participants about how to properly clean boats.  Finally, the effort involved a series of articles by outdoor writers in local newspapers and other publications.  In total, the outreach effort aimed to reach more than one million recreational users of the Great Lakes.
