DEPT. BOATING & WATERWAYS DOCKWALKER TRAINING

DOCKWALKER TRAINING

The California State Parks Division of Boating and Waterways (DBW’s)  and the California Coastal Commission’sBoating Clean & Green Program, the Bay Foundation (DBW’s Clean Vessel Act program) in partnership with the US Power Squadrons, US Coast Guard Auxiliary, Save Our Shores, and the Lake Berryessa Partnership will conduct more Dockwalker trainings this year.  If you are already a trained Dockwalker and were trained more than 3 years ago, please join us this year for a refresher class.

 Dockwalkers are trained to engage members of the public and the boating community to adopt clean boating practices. Dockwalkers share clean boating information with boaters and distribute educational materials (boater kits), while visiting marinas, launch ramps, marine supply stores, boat shows and special events (i.e. regattas, opening days, among others).  As you realize, “Dockwalker” is only a generic term because you do not necessarily have to “walk the docks” in order to talk to boaters about safety and clean boating practices. Remember safety and the environment go hand in hand.

Training is FREE and Dockwalking is a fantastic way to interact with boaters to help keep California’s marinas, waterways, and ocean clean and healthy. The training provides an overview of environmentally-sound boating practices, information about how to conduct Dockwalking, and educational materials that Dockwalkers will distribute including the 2017 boater kits. These boater kits include; A Boater’s Guide to Keeping Pollutants Out of the Water; Oil Absorbent Pillow to capture oil leaks and drips; a variety of informative Clean and Safe Boating Resources including the “Environmental Boating Laws Every Recreational Boater Should Know,” the ABC’s of Boating Law, among others. Depending on your region, we may also provide the Delta Clean Boating map and the San Francisco Bay Area Clean Boating Map.  In addition, newly trained Southern California Dockwalkers will receive the new edition of the Southern California Boater’s Guide. This year we are also including a fuel bib.

In the last five years, more than 700 Dockwalkers have distributed over 90,000 boater kits statewide. Hours spent training or educating the public qualify as community service.

The benefits the Dockwalker program will provide you with the following benefits include (also attached, second page):

  • Yacht clubs believe that education is critical to successfully operating a clean boating facility and minimizing water quality impacts. Becoming a Dockwalker or having a staff person or yacht club members trained as Dockwalkers will provide you with the educational materials and tools to work with your tenants and visitors as partners in the clean marina, clean water effort.
  • Participation in the DOCKWALKER PROGRAM counts towards the nomination of the Club of the Year under the community service category.

Marina del Rey Historical Society

DONATE TODAY TO SAVE YOUR YESTERDAY!

Marina del Rey recently turned 50. That means there are fifty years of history. The MdRHS is the depository for all things Marina del Rey. The Society has complete collections of The Argonaut, The Dinghy, photographs dating back to the 1800’s, and is the recipient of Greg Wenger’s extensive photography collection which encompasses the development, the building, the racing, and the events of MdR throughout those fifty years.

The Society has started a fund raising campaign for equipment and materials to archive and preserve this artifact collection.
If you have lived, sailed, raced, or biked in Marina del Rey… THIS IS YOUR HISTORY TOO! Please consider any donation amount so that the Society can move forward with building a researchable digital collection of our materials while preserving the originals for future generations.
