On December 18, from 10am – 4pm, the Canyon County Sheriff’s Office Marine Patrol Division and Idaho Parks & Recreation are offering a free boat safety course for those who want to complete the Boater Safety Course before the summer heat arrives.

The Canyon County Sheriff’s Office and Idaho Parks and Recreation Department will teach the introductory course at the Canyon County Emergency Operations Center, located at 1323 E. Chicago St. Caldwell, Idaho 83605. Attendees will learn about boats and maintenance, information to make their boating experience safer, Idaho boating laws, and tips on being a more courteous boat operator.

The course is open to all, regardless of experience, and attendees who complete the course will earn their boater education safety card. Those interested can register by visiting the Idaho Parks & Recreation website or emailing Sgt. Jason Roberts at jason.roberts@canyoncounty.id.gov.
