It’s been a hot summer and I bet many of you love heading to the nearest lake to cool off. But, when you hit the water in your boat do you remember to always have an observer with a man-down flag to keep the water-skier you’re towing safe? When you cast your fishing line in the water, do you remember to give other anglers sufficient distance?

Here at Tread Lightly! we strive to provide you with some great responsible recreation tips to keep you safe, including our newest brochure, Sharing Our Water, the latest addition to the Quick Tip Brochures series.

“With the weather heating up, we thought it a perfect time to unveil this new educational resource. Our educational library is extensive and we’re proud to add one more crucial piece to it – Sharing Our Water,” said Lori McCullough, Tread Lightly!’s executive director. “Research shows that issue specific messages are much more effective in motivating behavior change than materials that target a specific recreational activity.”

The new brochure can be downloaded for free or purchased from the Tread Lightly! store.
