Summer Beach Safety Programs

The beach is beautiful, fun and relaxing — but there are some safety tips that can help ensure your day at the beach ends as wonderfully as it began. 

On June 24 from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m., the Coastal Branch Library will offer a program on summer swimming and safety tips as part of the Summer Reading Program, "Fizz, Boom and Read." The Summer Reading Program offers hands-on science projects and games as part of each program. The class will feature members of South Walton Fire District's Junior Life-Guard program who will teach valuable tips on how to stay safe at the beach. This event is free. 
 
On June 27 from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m., there will be a class teaching how to identify the differences between sharks and dolphins. The class will be held at Topsail Hill State Park and has a $6 entry free. The class will include a discussion on what to look for and which behaviors can help you spot the difference between sharks and dolphins. Enter the park through the main gate, and staff will direct you to the park's clubhouse. 
 
These simple, quick classes can help keep you and your family safe while enjoying everything beautiful South Walton beaches have to offer. Keep checking back for more summer safety programs offered at South Walton!
