Free Boater Safety Education Training

Boat Safety

The Lake Minnetonka Conservation District (LMCD) and the Hennepin county Sheriff’s Office Water Patrol will be hosting only two more Boater Safety Education Training sessions for 2015!

The sessions will be held on Saturday, June 20 and Monday, June 22 at the Westonka Public Schools’ Educational Service Center.

This program assists and instructs the youth (ages 12–17) and their guardian through the Minnesota DNR’s online test, as well as offers interactive breakout sessions throughout the day (tour of watercraft for safety and environmental purposes, knot tying, and fuel and fire safety).

All costs, which include lunch, a snack, and the Minnesota DNR permit fee, are covered by the LMCD’s Save the Lake Fund and contributing partners.

For more information or to register, visit LMCD’s website or call the LMCD at 952-745-0789.
