Marine Patrol and Aquatic Invasive Species
The weather is warming up and you’re most likely inspired to boat, kayak, or raft Oregon’s myriad waterways. In this week’s “Grant’s Getaway,” I team up with the Oregon State Marine Board and Oregon Fish & Wildlife to bring you tips on water safety and how you can help keep dangerous shellfish from invading Oregon’s waters.
Editor’s Note: Grant’s Getaways is a production of Travel Oregon brought to you in association with Oregon State Parks, Oregon Dept. of Fish & Wildlife and Oregon State Marine Board. Episodes air Fridays and Saturdays on KGW Newschannel 8 and Saturdays on Northwest Cable News Network.
