Clean Boater Program
Clean Boater Program Needs You!

Oregon is renown for its majestic, clean and sparkling waterways and we know boaters want to do their part to keep them that way. That's why we've created the Clean Boater Program, where we provide boaters the tools they need to help keep their water clean. 

Oregon Clean Boater Program- Details
Protecting Oregon’s environment is not only the responsibility of state agencies and businesses, but of all Oregonians. Boaters can play an important role to help ensure that future generations can enjoy clean waterways. 
So to say "thank you" to all the boaters that care about the environment and strive to adopt clean boating practices, the Marine Board has developed a recognition program to reward those of you that take that extra step. This is your opportunity to sign-up and become officially designated as an Oregon Clean Boater!

Just three easy steps to enroll into the program: 
  1. First you need to review the Marine Board publication “A Clean Boater’s Guide – Protecting Oregon’s Marine Resources." This booklet highlights all of the important practices boaters need to do to protect the environment when boating.
  2. Next, sign the program pledge form.  This is your official commitment to follow the guidelines outlined in the guidebook.
  3. Finally, complete the environmental questionnaire. The Marine Board is using this data to gauge the baseline awareness of boaters about environmental topics. The results of the data will help the Marine Board develop education and outreach methods that focus on areas where it's needed.
Once you have completed these three easy steps, submit your paperwork to the Environmental Programs Coordinator, Meg Gardner (meg.gardner@state.or.us) and your FREE boater tote bag with lots of great resources will be mailed to you! Thank you for taking the time to review the program materials.
