PUBLIC EDUCATION PROGRAM
The Oyster Point Harbor Patrol has introduced a new public education program. This program is available to schools and community groups for the promotion of Boating and Water Safety.
The Oyster Point Harbor Patrol is a group of dedicated water safety professionals that have identified a need to reach out to the community, to educate individuals, both young and old, of the enjoyment offered by water recreation and the potential hazards associated with playing in and on the water.
The school program has been developed for the kindergarten through eight grade students; introducing them to water safety, beach safety (rip currents, erosion, and environmental impacts), water pollution, and boating safety. This general program runs up to forty-five minutes, is designed to be interactive with the students, including props (non pun intended) and a multimedia presentation. School programs are available for presentation at Oyster Point Marina or at your school.
Other public outreach and educational programs are available for community needs. For more information contact Deputy Harbormaster Greg Gubser at (650) 871-7344..
