The Delaware River provides ample opportunities for foot entrapment. Remember when swimming, floating, fishing or boating to wear adequate water shoes and keep your feet off the river floor in swift water. If your foot becomes trapped it can lead to serious injury. #SafetySaturday #UpperDelaware #FootEntrapment #NoseAndToes at Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreation River
Check out how well these critters can camouflage! Many organisms mimic their surrounding in order to protect themselves from predators. The slug in the first photo blends right in with the fungus, and the moths in the second photo look like a dead leaf. #WildlifeWednesday #UpperDelaware at Upper Delaware Scenic & Recreational River
Our interns are jumping for joy to spend their summer working at Upper Delaware S&RR. #upperdelaware #internship #canoing #upperdelawaresrr
Always remember to do a tick check after going outside! We have five common tick breeds around the park that can carry infectious diseases. Check spots that ticks could easily hide in like your hairline, knees, and arm pits! #SafetySunday #CheckYourself #UpperDelaware
The rangers here at Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River have painted various rocks and hidden them all over Wayne County. Keep an eye out for a rock featuring one of the following: a life jacket, a bald eagle, the Roebling Bridge, the Zane Grey House, or a NPS arrowhead. If you find one, post a photo of it to the Wayne County PA Rocks Facebook page!

Timber Rattlesnakes are one of the many snakes that call the Delaware River home. They are also highly venomous so if you spot one keep a distance. They're common around tall grass and shorelines. #SafetySunday at Ten Mile River Scout Camps

This is the caterpillar of the Hickory Tussock Moth which is home to much of the Northeastern United States. They use warning colors and spikes to warn that they are venomous, and often poisonous as well. #wildlifewednesday #UpperDelaware at Mongaup
Paddling the river is fun, but it sure is exhausting! Always remember to wear sunblock, drink plenty of water, and stay cool. We recommend water with a splash of sports drink to replenish lost electrolytes. #SafetySaturday #UpperDelaware #StayHydrated at Upper Delaware Scenic & Recreational River

Zane Grey worked at this very desk between 1903-1918, in which he wrote some of his most famous novels like Riders of the Purple Sage. Come check out the Zane Grey Museum and look at more artifacts of his time here on the Delaware River!

An intern captured this photo of a family of American Black ducks coming up to her canoe. As soon as their down feathers dry, newly hatched ducklings are able to leave the nest and follow their mother to areas with food and cover. Remember when spotting any wildlife to refrain from feeding, as it may alter natural instincts.

If you capsize your boat, here's a few tips on what to do:
1) Wear a life jacket.
2) Lay on your back with your feet in front of you to avoid head/foot injury.
3) Stay behind your vessel.
4) Never stand up in moving water.
5) Don't panic.
