Please Respect Our Beautiful Beach

Date Posted: Monday, May 23rd, 2016

As the summer is upon us,  Bowers Beach has many events and of course, our beautiful sandy beach.   Please be careful and watch where you are walking.  Since past storms destroyed a lot of the beachfront dunes and protection,  efforts are being made to restore some of the dunes and sea grass.   Please respect our beautiful beach.  Feel free to walk/fish on our new jetty.  Please do not start camp fires on the jetty and leave the rocks in place as these are part of the overall construction of the jetty.  Always bring extra bags to pick up your trash (and bring it with you), keep your dogs leashed at all times (it’s the law).  Pick up after them if they have an accident on the beach or the parking lots.   Please do not litter.   Let’s all work together to keep Bowers Beach “Delaware’s Best Kept Secret”.

Are you AWARE?
“With the arrival of summer, DNREC’s Division of Fish & Wildlife Natural Resources Police are increasing patrols and closely monitoring state wildlife areas, fishing piers, public boat launching facilities and multi-use areas for visitor safety and compliance, as well as checking for illegal activity such as vandalism, littering, dumping and damaging wildlife habitat.  All of these sites have a carry-in, carry-out trash policy.”

“Littering can be a problem, especially in many fishing areas, so please leave no trace behind and take your trash with you”
