Take the PLEDGE

There is something special about the Adirondacks. Here, we live, visit, work, and play in a place where millions of acres of public and private land offer us a chance to coexist with nature. By taking the Love Your Adirondacks Pledge and practicing Leave No Trace ethics you can help ensure that the forests, waterways, and communities of the Adirondacks remain beautiful and unique for generations to come.

I pledge to:

  • Love the Adirondacks in a way that is mindful of others

  • Only share thoughtful messages on social media that encourage good stewardship

  • View wildlife from afar and be considerate of their home

  • Embrace the hiker ethos and get my boots dirty by walking through the mud

  • Always explore responsibly and prepare for any experience

  • Do my duty to properly dispose of trash as well as pet and human waste

  • Keep woods and waters clean by checking my gear and equipment for invasive species

  • Support, practice, and inspire others to follow the Leave No Trace Seven Principles.

Take the pledge!
