Start the spring season off right with a boat inspection by the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary.
Upon receiving a passed inspection, you will be given a boat decal indicating compliance with Illinois Department of Natural Resources safety regulations. Safety checks are available for all types of watercraft.
Staff will be on hand to answer questions you may have about boating in the Forest Preserves and provide safety tips. Sidewalks and the fishing wall are easily accessible by way of a paved walk.
No registration is required for this program.
Anyone who requires an auxiliary aid or service to participate in this program should mention their request when registering, or submit a request online no later than 48 hours before the program.
