Enjoy the River Safely · Wear your life jacket. Make sure your child wears a life jacket! · Use alcohol responsibly. Many river accidents involve alcohol. · Wear sunscreen, sunglasses, and a hat to prevent sunburn. Water reflects the rays of the sun giving you a double dose of ultraviolet light. · Avoid trees that have fallen in the river. They can catch and overturn your vessel. · Don't jump from cliffs, bridges, or trees. · Protect your feet with river shoes, water sandals, or old shoes. Fish hooks, glass, and rocks can injure your feet. · Bring your own drinking water. Treat river water before drinking to avoid giardia, a serious stomach irritant. · Blastomycosis is a fungal infection that is commonly contracted by dogs and sometimes by humans. Avoid digging in moist soils. · Check for ticks often and know the symptoms of Lyme disease. Deer ticks are common along the Riverway and some carry the bacteria that cause the disease. · Know how to identify poison ivy and avoid contact.
