Summer brings boating season and as a part of that, the Wyoming Game and Fish Department will host a boater safety course at the Glendo State Park Whiskey Gulch picnic shelter, June 1 from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m.

Every year, park law enforcement and game wardens contact visitors about a wide array of safety and legal issues regarding boating on the reservoir. Through these interactions, they have found that many of the guests - especially those new to boating recreation - have questions about how to boat safely and legally.

Both Glendo State Park staff and Game Wardens are very interested in educating the public so that boaters can enjoy their trip, and so that all people can stay safe during their visit to Glendo State Park.

boater-safetyTowards that end, Game and Fish has coordinated with park staff to plan a boating safety education program, which will include a presentation on boating regulations and a Q&A session.

Attendees will also learn about the inauguration of the lifejacket loaner program at the park this summer. This program is accessible to all ages, and boaters of all experience levels are encouraged to take advantage of the opportunity to meet wardens and park staff, and learn more about safe and legal boating at Glendo State Park.

This event is free and open to the public.
