If you’d like to be out on the lake all season long in Riding Mountain National Park, you’ll need to attend an aquatic invasive species session.

The goal of the sessions is to enhance the invasive species program and engage frequent lake users to help protect the waters.

Having a boat inspection is mandatory before getting any kind of boating permit.

This year there are single day, seven day, and season-long boating permits.

Season-long permits have been introduced because some people didn't want to renew permits and have boat inspections every week.

As well as the many sessions going on at the visitor centre in Wasagaming, there will be sessions going on in Dauphin, McCreary, and Rossburn.

The Dauphin sessions will go on at the curler’s lounge in the rec complex on June 5th and 11th from 7-9pm, In McCreary, a session will take place on June 14th from 7-9 pm at the community centre, and in Rossburn on May 27th from 7-9 pm at the drop-in centre.
