NDOW participates in national campaign to promote boating education

During the week of April 20-26, the Nevada Department of Wildlife (NDOW) in conjunction with the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators (NASBLA) encourages boaters to Spring Aboard by enrolling in a boating education course. Working in partnership with the states, many course providers will offer incentives or course discounts for students who enroll in or complete a course during the Spring Aboard campaign.

In Nevada, boaters can visit http://www.ndow.org to find online courses or to find local Coast Guard Auxiliary courses in their areas. Boaters can also visit NDOW offices in person and get a correspondence course free-of-charge. Boaters born on or after Jan.1, 1983 are required to take a boating education course to operate a boat on Nevada’s interstate waters, which includes Lakes Mead, Mohave, Topaz and Tahoe, as well as the Colorado River South of Davis Dam. NDOW has also released a podcast on http://www.nevadawild.org that talks in great detail about boating safety and education in Nevada.
