Boating Clean and Green Program

The Boating Clean and Green Program is an education and outreach program that promotes environmentally sound boating practices to marine business and boaters in California. The program is conducted by the California Division of Boating and Waterways and the California Coastal Commission.

Started in April 1997, the Program conducts boater education throughout the state in partnership with many public and private agencies that share a concern about educating boaters about environmentally sound boating practices.

As part of its efforts to promote clean green boating, the Program facilitates the northern California and the Sacramento – San Joaquin Delta chapters of the California Clean Boating Network (CCBN), trains "Dockwalkers" to conduct face-to-face boater education, and influences the purchasing power of boaters through its "Shopping Clean and Green" project.
