Members of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Savannah District staffed two booths at the 10th Annual Savannah Boat and Outdoor Show, March 2 – 4 at the Savannah International Trade and Convention Center. The show attracts thousands of current and would-be boat owners and outdoor enthusiasts with extensive displays of the latest in watercraft lines, marine equipment, accessories and services. The Savannah District booths featured kids coloring books and promotional items on water safety, maps and pamphlets about the Corps’ Savannah River Lakes, and dock permitting information. The event was a great way for the Corps to reach a specific target audience—boat owners and water recreation enthusiasts—to communicate key messages about water safety and stream/wetland permitting. Remember, always wear your life jacket when recreating in, on or near the water. Don’t leave land without it!
