Canoeing tips for beginners at Sweitzer Lake State Park

There may not be any pea-green boats manned by owls or pussycats, but there will be tips on how to canoe Saturday at Sweitzer Lake State Park.

Colorado Parks and Wildlife will host a free canoe-skills-for-beginners class from 9 a.m. until noon on Saturday at the state park located three miles south of Delta on U.S. Highway 50.

The class, taught by state parks ranger Scott Rist, will give an orientation to canoeing, paddle strokes and safety.

The class is limited to four people, and participants must have their own a boat, paddle and life jacket.

Owls and cats are on their own.
