As marina managers, our teams are responsible for the gateways to the water, and we do not take that lightly. We are committed to helping preserve the natural waterways we enjoy everyday. Our focus on environmental stewardship will be front and center this month as we celebrate National Marina Day all month long!
To kick us off we are lucky to have our partner and friend Sarah Orlando, the Ohio Clean Marina Program Manager, on to take us through the Ohio Clean Marina Program, their mission and partners, and ways for the boating community to get involved in clean boating practices! Sarah started with the organization in 2011, and since then has grown the program to include the entire state of Ohio and works closely with the Great Lakes programs as well.
We are excited to recognize National Marina Day for the third year in a row! We are hosting over 20 marina cleanups throughout the month, including 3 in Ohio in partnership with Ohio Clean Marinas and Eriesponsible.
