BOATER SAFETY CLASS
Through its Save the Lake Fund, LMCD partners with the Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office Water Patrol, MN DNR, and Mound Fire Department for a hands-on Boater Safety Education Program. Adults and youths (ages 12 to 17 years old) work directly with presenters in obtaining their Watercraft Operator’s Permit. A parent/guardian is encouraged to attend with youth to enhance the value of training.
The class is typically held in early or mid-June at the Westonka Public Schools’ Education Service Center (Community Room), 5901 Sunnyfield Rd E, Minnetrista. A registration form will be posted on this page and the LMCD homepage when the next class date has been set. Please contact the LMCD with questions.
2020 Class Cancelled
Due to Governor Walz’s executive orders and health officials’ recommendations regarding COVID-19, the Boater Safety Class will not be offered this summer. However, the LMCD will continue to promote safe boating through online means. Watch for more public education materials in the coming months.
