The Georgia Department of Natural Resources will teach boater education classes in Glynn, Camden and Brantley counties through early October.

The Glynn County classes will be held in the Susan Shipman building at the DNR’s Brunswick office at 1 Conservation Way at the northern foot of the Sidney Lanier Bridge.
In Brantley County, the classes will be offered from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m., June 7, July 26 and Aug. 16. The nighttime class will be held Sept. 16 and 18 from 6 until 10 p.m. Those classes will be at the Brantley County Library on U.S. 82 in Nahunta.
