Safety for All Seasons

Most kayakers, canoers, and paddleboarders are designed for use on protected waters and moderate currents. Know your limits!
Life jackets save lives. 85% of all drowning victims were not wearing life jackets.
The size, speed and unpredictable nature of horses require safety precautions to be practiced.
Don’t wait for bad weather. If you sense a change for the worse, get off the water!
Wear safety equipment, such as helmets, gloves, and other off road vehicle protective gear.
Corps of Engineers park rangers regularly patrol the water checking for proper life jacket wear, required safety equipment, and safe boater operations.
State laws require specific safety equipment or attire to be wore while hunting. It is also important to remember to wear your life jacket while hunting from a boat or a safety harness while hunting high up in a tree.
