Visit North Carolina and Leave No Trace want you to Make It Your Nature next time – and every time – you
visit our great outdoors by taking the Outdoor NC Pledge.

I vow to make it my nature to:

  • Respect North Carolina’s outdoor spaces and my fellow visitors by practicing the Leave No Trace Principles.
  • Learn and honor the cultural norms for the places I visit.
  • Map my trip wisely, avoid times of peak visitation, and have Plan B in my pocket if the parking lot’s full.
  • Play it safe when it comes to waterfalls, rip currents and other forces beyond my control.
  • Stick to established trails and avoid damaging (or impacting) pristine surfaces.
  • Remove my own litter and my dog’s doo, and to pitch in whenever I see trash.
  • Avoid intruding on the habitats and areas where bears, wild horses, salamanders and other creatures live.
  • Take pictures from the trail instead of souvenirs from nature.
  • Treat everyone I encounter with patience and understanding in consideration for people who may be unaware of caring for the outdoors.

Take the pledge and you could be entered to win one of four (4) ENO Leave No Trace DoubleNest Hammocks. We’ll be selecting a winner every quarter, so don’t forget to provide your email. Even if you don’t win a hammock, you’re a winner for pledging to “Make It Your Nature.”
