LINCOLN, R.I. (WBZNewsRadio) - The Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management (DEM) is investigating after racist signs were discovered posted at Lincoln Woods State park.

"It's particularly sad that vandals have targeted Lincoln Woods, Rhode Island's first state park which since 1909 has existed to afford the greatest good for the greatest number." DEM wrote in a statement on social media. "DEM strongly condemns racism and discrimination."

The signs have been taken down and the DEM's division of law enforcement is investigating.

Now the DEM is asking anyone who has any information about the signs or may spot another one, to give them a call at 401-222-4700
