This summer, don't miss your chance to take a free Illinois Safe Boating class at the Illinois Waterway Visitor Center at Starved Rock Lock & Dam. The U.S Army Corps of Engineers will be holding free safe boating classes throughout the summer. Classes will be offered on April 28, May 19, June 23, July 14, and August 18 from 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. to everyone age 11 and older. Students under age 16 should be accompanied by an adult. Pre-registration is required. This class is recommended for people who are new to boating, scouts, families that enjoy weekend boating adventures, or seasoned boaters who would just like to brush up on their safe boating knowledge. This is a classroom-based safety class and will not include any on-the-water experience. Upon successful completion of the class and exam, participants will be issued an Illinois DNR Boat Safety Certification. The indoor class will review basic boating safety, equipment and requirements, motorboat registration and titling, navigation, basic maintenance, emergency measures and Illinois and federal boating laws. Participants should bring their own lunch and drinks. Class materials will be provided. For more information and class registration contact the Illinois Waterway Visitor Center at 815-667-4054. The Illinois Waterway Visitor Center is located at 950 N. 27th Rd, Ottawa, IL 61350
