RESPONSIBLE USE OF ALCOHOL IN PROVINCIAL PARKS

Saskatchewan Environment and Resource Management (SERM) today issued a

reminder to all park visitors that they will be enforcing the

responsible use of alcohol at all provincial parks and recreation

sites.



Park visitors may consume alcoholic beverages at their campsite as

long as they do so in a responsible and quiet manner. However,

individuals abusing alcohol, or otherwise creating a disturbance, will

be charged or evicted from the park. The department will be applying

zero tolerance to minors possessing or consuming alcohol.



In past years, the May long weekend has produced the greatest problems

in provincial parks. SERM wants campers to enjoy their park visit in

a safe environment and not have it ruined by individuals abusing

alcohol.
