Boaters and anglers interested in getting the latest on fishing regulations and safety afloat are invited to join the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) Friday night, May 2, at Chinsegut Conservation Center. The free, public program and demonstrations run from 6:30-8 p.m.

FWC staff will help refresh people’s skills and knowledge about boating safety and offer the latest information on fishing regulations along the Nature Coast.

An actual FWC patrol boat will be there for boating safety demonstrations, providing attendees the chance to hear directly from the folks who enforce the laws and manage the fishery.

This program offers excellent opportunities for photographs and getting acquainted with the regulations and safety measures that help ensure your family remains safe and legal this summer. After all, summer is a perfect time to get out on the water!
