Get on board: Boating safety courses scheduled
With spring in the air and many of the region’s lakes and reservoirs either open or nearly open for boating, it’s time to remember boating safety.
The minimum unrestricted age for operating a motorboat or personal watercraft in Colorado is 16; however, 14- and 15-year-olds may do so after successfully completing a boating-safety course.
Highline State Park offers these two-hour safety courses throughout the spring and summer, with the first being April 28.
Cost is $15, and it is open to all interested boaters.
Don’t forget the life jacket.
WHAT: A two-hour state-approved boating safety course.
WHERE: Highline Lake State Park, north of Loma at Q and 1800 roads.
WHEN: Offered once a month from April through September.
