Now that summer’s here, the river beckons—but be safe! If you are boating or tubing, wear a life jacket. Go with someone else rather than boating alone. Let someone know of your plans. If you are separated from your companions, get back to them as soon as possible to let them know your whereabouts. And while you’re out there, make the river safer for people and wildlife—leave no glass, no trash, no fishing line or hooks.
