The Illinois Natural History Survey, Prairie Research Institute, and the University of Illinois are expanding the Stop Aquatic Hitchhikers!program by hiring Clean Boats Crew site leaders for the summer.

Clean Boats Crew site leaders will work in Lake and Cook Counties, IL, and Lake, Porter, and LaPorte Counties, IN, educating the public about aquatic invasive species and how these species are unintentionally spread. Site leaders will manage a team of volunteers and be supervised by a program coordinator.


These positions are an excellent opportunity to gain experience while being directly involved in education and outreach to an audience that will be crucial in helping prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species.
