Pre-registration required!

Everyone must preregister for these trainings/drills.  We have a limited amount of space for the oiled wildlife care training and limited space on boats at the drills.  In recent years the drills have sometimes filled up early, so let us know as soon as you can if you can come.  We always try to accommodate as many people as possible.
