Comments Off on Grand Bay NERR to offer Boater Education Classes this Summer

Do you own a boat or WANT to own a boat?  Do you have a child over age 10 who rides with you on a boat?  If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then you need to take advantage of one of two boater education classes being offered this summer.

The Department of Marine Resources (DMR) in cooperation with the Grand Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve (NERR) will be offering a class on June 20th and July 25th to promote boater education to local citizens. Everyone knows that safety on our waters is an important issue, given the access to water and large number of boaters in our area.

The classes are free of charge and open to the public. A DMR Marine Patrol Officer will be instructing each class. These folks are your friends on and off the water.

You must be at least 10 years of age to receive a certificate of course completion.
