There have already been 84 drownings in the Great Lakes this year, up from 64 this time last year, according to data from the Great Lakes Surf Rescue Project.

Friends of Grand Haven State Park’s Bob Moore noticed drowning on the rise and decided to do something about it.

“We recognized that the state was struggling with a solution to this problem,” he said. “And the solution to almost every problem is education.”
