PA Basic Boating Course
Sweet Arrow Lake County Park and the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission are sponsoring a Basic Boating Education Course at the Sweet Arrow Lake County Park on Sunday, March 18, 2018, 11:30 a.m.-7:30 p.m.
A Pennsylvania Boating Safety Education Certificate is required for all Pennsylvania residents born on or after January 1, 1982 in order to operate any boat greater than 25 horsepower and all operators of personal watercraft (commonly called jet skis). The course is scheduled for eight hours with a ½ hour lunch break (lunch is not provided). The course includes all necessary materials. Successful completion of the examination at the end of the course will result in the issuance of a temporary boating safety education certificate and enable the student to apply for a permanent boating safety education certificate.
Registration is required by contacting Drew Kline at Sweet Arrow Lake County Park at 570-527-2505.

A slide program and cultural items of the Plains peoples will be presented by Dave “Big Owl” McSurdy on Tuesday, March 20, 2018, 7:00-8:00 p.m. at the Sweet Arrow Lake County Park clubhouse. The program will present the culture and environment of Indians living in Montana and South Dakota.
Do you have good manners in the forest? Learn forest etiquette and how to conduct yourself in the forest to enjoy your experiences in the outdoors with other forest users such as people, bears, and ticks. Frank Snyder, retired forester and arborist, will share his years of wood-wise knowledge during a short walk in the forest on Sunday, March 25, 2018, 2:00-3:00 p.m. at Sweet Arrow Lake County Park. Become more comfortable during your outings by learning how to react if you face a bear, must make a warning fire in the rain, or how to protect yourself from ticks. Other topics will be presented to increase your outdoor skills. All participants are welcome, especially youth, scouts and experienced wood-wise folks. We will meet at the large pavilion near the clubhouse. Be sure to dress for the weather. This program is free and open to the public. Registration is not required.
