DEFIANCE – An Ohio Boating Education Course will be offered from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday, May 3 at Five Span Marina, 19687 State Route 637 in Paulding County, south of Defiance, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) Division of Watercraft.

The fee for the course is $5, which covers the cost of course materials. Preregistration is required due to class size limitations.

The course covers a variety of boating topics such as navigation rules, boating and personal safety equipment, navigational signage, Ohio boating laws and much more.
