BEACH LAKE, PA – With this year’s boating season right around the corner, now is the time to dust off your “Wear It!” lawn signs. These signs help Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River spread the important message to always wear a life jacket when boating, swimming, fishing, or floating on any body of water. Wearing life jackets save lives.

If you have a “Wear It!” lawn sign from the National Park Service, we ask that you start displaying it, beginning in April. This will ensure that we are ready to kick off Water Safety Month in May 2016. Consider placing the signs on your property near a road, in a place that will be most visible to the public. If you live on the river, consider putting your sign right on the riverbank! Please only put “Wear It!” signs on your own property or on property where you have permission from the property owner. Thank you for doing your part to raise awareness!

If you do not have a lawn sign and would like one, or if you need a replacement sign, please contact Connie Lloyd at (570) 685-4871 ext. 6604 or connie_lloyd@nps.gov.
