As part of a grant awarded in May of 2010, YLRA continued with its I-LIDS video inspections of boats at 3 launches on Yellow Lake. This was augmented by paid CBCW inspections, volunteer boat launch inspectors, educational materials, and training to the lake association membership on AIS issues including education and soliciting volunteer support. This final report references other documents and describes required deliverables.
