CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - The Wyoming Game and Fish Department is beginning to offer watercraft and equipment inspection and decontamination training for anyone interested.

The trainings begin Saturday in Cheyenne and conclude June 3 in Jackson.

In between, there will be trainings offered in Green River, Lander, Sheridan, Evanston, Laramie and Gillette.

The trainings will provide the skill necessary for boaters to inspect their own watercraft and will include training on basic mussel biology, distribution, transport vectors and impacts.

The focus is on how to inspect watercraft that may be transporting zebra or quagga mussels. Training will include classroom instruction, a question and answer session, and a hands-on watercraft inspection exercise.
