Still Spots Available for Boating Education Lagniappe Day

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) is reminding those that need their boating education about the 11th annual “Boating Education Lagniappe Day” on April 23 at eight different locations across the state.

There are still spots available for this Saturday’s Boating Safety Lagniappe Day Courses at several locations. LDWF urges the public to register for one of the eight classes by visiting and click on the link for “Find A Course Near You”.

During Boating Education Lagniappe Day, LDWF will provide instructors for the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators (NASBLA) boating education course and NASBLA boating education certification and lunch with some locations also providing door prizes all free of charge.

Anyone born after January 1st 1984 is required by law to complete a NASBLA approved boaters safety course before operating a vessel on the public waters of the state. This comprehensive course covers all things related to boating safety here in Louisiana and is accepted in all other states that require NASBLA certification.

The Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Agents Association along with other business partners help make annual Lagniappe Day possible across the state.
