The Lake Minnetonka Conservation District (LMCD), through its Save the Lake Fund and in partnership with the Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office Water Patrol, offer free Boater Safety Education training sessions to youth (12 to 17 years old). Participants have the ability to bring a guardian and work directly with energetic presenters in obtaining their Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (MN DNR) Watercraft Operator’s Permit. The last two sessions for 2015 will be held on Saturday, June 20th and Monday, June 22nd at the Westonka Public Schools’ Educational Service Center. A summary of the program details and registration form for each session can be found within.
This program assists and instructs the youth and their guardian through the MN DNR’s on-line test, as well as offer 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 MN DNR permit fee, are covered by the LMCD’s Save the Lake Fund and contributing partners.
