Wildlife Forever Fights Back Against Great Lakes Invasive Species

The following press release is courtesy of Wildlife Forever:

White Bear Lake, MN – Wildlife Forever has taken another innovative step towards fighting the spread of aquatic invasive species in the Great Lakes by donating a solarized watercraft cleaning station to the City of Duluth.

Located within the St. Louis River estuary, the access at Munger Landing was recently outfitted with a CD3 Watercraft Cleaning Station to empower boaters to self-inspect and Clean Drain and Dry boats, trailers and equipment. In partnership with St. Louis County and the Minnesota DNR, the project highlights the importance of collaboration between state, county, city, private companies and conservation groups to bring real solutions in fighting the spread of aquatic invasive species.

Munger Landing is the second access to be retrofitted with new cleaning station technology. In addition to providing physical tools to remove weeds and water, the new station will soon be outfitted with a Wi-Fi educational platform to highlight invasive species issues but also allow boaters to purchase fishing licenses, download lake maps and safe boating information.

“The Great Lakes remain a major pathway for the potential introduction of invasive species,” said Pat Conzemius, Executive Vice President for Wildlife Forever. “I could not be more proud of the partners involved that worked together to enhance this access for AIS identification/prevention but also making a place for people to learn more about the resource,” said Conzemius.

“The access at Munger Landing is a key location to the City of Duluth’s interconnected water trail and access to the St. Louis River, a crown jewel for paddlers, hunters, anglers, and birders. The station is a great complement to our awareness and prevention plans for preventing invasive species,” said Lisa Luokkala, Senior Parks Planner for the City of Duluth.

Wildlife Forever’s Clean Drain Dry Initiative is a national campaign to educate outdoor recreational users on how to prevent the spread of invasive species. Strategic communications, marketing, outreach and educational services inform the public about invasive species prevention and consistent best management practices. Newly designed cleaning stations are waterless, user-operated and includes a wet/dry vacuum, blower, and tethered hand tools for easy use. The CD3 station is not your average cleaning station. The system has internet connected technology to allow natural resource managers to track visitor use, functionality and maintenance needs.

New ScentLok Products Protect Deer Hunters’ Scents

The following press release is courtesy of ScentLok:

Muskegon, MI (February 19, 2018) – Elite whitetail hunters take every possible precaution to protect themselves from their quarry’s incredible sense of smell. ScentLok’s patented Carbon AlloyTMhunting garments have been proven deadly in the field, by combining activated carbon with zeolite and treated carbon to help adsorb a larger spectrum of odors – as well as targeting specific odors – better than ever before. But every piece of gear we take into the field picks up additional ambient odors that can be alarming to deer, which is why a Complete Odor Management strategy should also involve your home and vehicle.

 

New for 2018, OZ Active Odor-Destroyers by ScentLok are designed to reactivate activated carbon garments and deodorize other gear and accessories, while also keeping the environments around hunters and their gear as odor-free as possible. These premium pre- and post-hunt ozone products utilize the very latest technology and do not interfere with other odor-controlling products on the market.

 

 

From the home to the truck to the field and back home again, the new OZ family of Active Odor Destroyers by ScentLok helps keep environments around hunters and their gear odor-free.

 

 

 

OZ Active Odor Destroyers are specifically designed to emit a powerful stream of ozone molecules that seek out and destroy virtually all types of odors and bacteria in their path. When ozone comes in contact with these contaminants, their chemical structure is changed to a compound that is no longer recognizable as an offensive odor. As ozone continues to attack these compounds, the odor is destroyed through oxidation. The ozone then reverts back to oxygen. Revolutionary CycleCleanTMtechnology allows OZ generators to moderate output by alternating between active and resting phases for maximum efficiency and longer product life.

 

ScentLok’s OZ Active Odor Destroying Products consist of an OZ20 Vehicle DeodorizerOZ20B Portable DeodorizerOZ100 Small Room Deodorizer and OZ500 Large Room Deodorizer.

 

 

No odor is too tough for the ScentLok OZ500 Large Room Deodorizer. Complete with 12V DC power supply and vehicle power adaptor, OZ500 is the ideal odor destroyer for large rooms and spaces. It’s also compatible with ScentLok’s slick new OZChamber Hardline Storage Tote or OZChamber 8K Storage Bag.

 

 

 

The Long and Smelly Road

 

Ambient odors are insidious, and your vehicle collects them from every possible source as you travel down the roadways of everyday life. Your dog’s hair, the rogue french fries under your seat and the variety of odors that come off our own bodies; they all collect and co-mingle inside our vehicles, then conspire to hitch a ride with us whenever we leave and venture into the field. Ultimately, they all can sound like alarm bells to a whitetail’s nose.

 

Life teaches that cheap insurance comes in many forms. The latest of which for hunters is theScentLok OZ20 Vehicle Deodorizer. Simply plug this affordable marvel into your vehicle’s all-in-one 12V receptacle and let the odor destruction begin.

 

Even those who don’t hunt will appreciate the OZ20’s almost instant ability to deodorize the cabin of their car or truck. It’ll smell so clean, in fact, that you might even consider starting your own ride-sharing business.

The ScentLok OZ20 Vehicle Deodorizer destroys odors lurking inside your car or truck before they can destroy your hunt… or ruin date night.

The Truth Stinks

Everyone wants to believe their home smells like June apples, fresh linens or a Hawaiian breeze. But the reality is this: The foods we cook, the products we use, the animals we care for and our own diverse housekeeping practices make our homes smell like… well, something totally different. And when we leave our homes, those odors can easily go with us.

 

ScentLok OZ Room and Home Deodorizers make it easy kill the odors that live with us in our homes – not by masking them, but by breaking them down and literally destroying them. Three powerful and efficient models are available.
